Generally speaking, it is easier to just drag the fields to the report, then rename them automatically with my LNC Rename add-in.  The Access 2000-2003 version can be downloaded from this link:

(unless there is something I am missing -- if so, please give more details on exactly what you are doing here)
Although this can be done, as you can see by the code jppinto posted, it is not what I would call "Easy"

Please remember that adding controls at runtime will decompile your application.
(How are you planning to recompile your code automatically?)

Also note that this WILL NOT work in an MDE file or the Access Runtime.
These are two of the most popular ways of running Access applications, so you may be doing all the work for naught...

Finally, in a global sense, this is rarely done...

Like Helen, I would like to know a little more about what you are trying to do here and why.

Perhaps there is a less complex alternative...
