I'm using Access 2003.  I have a form whose Default View property is set to Continuous Forms.  I need a header area so that I can have field names across the top without them being repeated above every record.  If possible, how do I do it?  I'm trying to use a form to display data similarly to how it gets displayed in a report (which has a predefined header area that I can stick the field names and report name in)

take out the Labels of the controls in the detail section of the form and place them in the Header section of the form.

How do I create the header area?  That's my problem.  I don't see it available in the properties window unless I overlooked it.
