I have a report that is based on a Query.  I have a separate table that contains the Page header labels I want to use.  How can I query the separate table (not related to the content of the report) to set the Caption value of the label?

Use DLookup() as the Control Source for a textbox (instead of label):

=DLookup("[YourFieldName]","YourTableName")
