Field Label as a Formula


I want to be able to set a field label name through a formula. So far this is what i have

Format(now(),"mm-yyyy": "test"

But apparently the field label still shows up as Format(now(),"mm-yyyy" and not 11-2008: "test"

any suggestions?

Try adding this code to the open event of your form (replace myLabelName with the actual label name):

Me.MyLabelname.Caption = Format(now(),"mm-yyyy") &  " test"

You can't assign values to labels in sql.
You have to use vba code.
