At design time I loop through my controls in VBA to apply naming conventions.

I want to rename my labels as "lbl" & [Control source of the control the label is attached to].
To do this I either need to find the name of the control the label is attached to or, visa versa, the name of the label attached to each text or combo box.

Is there a property of the label or the txt/cbo box that will do this? I can't see one. Or is there another method?
