How do you unlink a label from a textbox.  Ie so that when I drag the textbox it doesnt take the label with it?  I want to use the label for something else and to have nothing to do with the textbox.

Is this possible, or do I have to delete the label and create another?

it is possible to move the label apart from the textbox, it has it's own little square to move it around.

however, I would not recommend it, as you say it's a different usage.
better create a new label

What I tend to do is cut/paste that label. This removes the association with the textbox

Is there not a setting I can just change somewhere?  Doesnt matter if not, I just thought there might be an easier way to unlink them..

  Yoru right...cut and paste is it, both for unlinking and linking.

Jim, with regards to Linking back to a textbox, if u set Error Checking option (Tools/Options/Error Checking) and check New Unassociated Labels
then on forms design u get the error check dropdown when u click on your unassociated label and have a chance to relink.
Mind u this is in A2003, Im not sure of any previous versions

"Is there not a setting I can just change somewhere?"  No there is no such 'setting'.

something to be wary off with unassociated labels, apparently they flicker
Just found this out
