I have several lables that when the user clicks , various forms appear.  However, there is a few second's delay and whie I know that the form will come up, an end-user won't.  Is there anyway to change teh appearance of a label when it is click so the user knows?  This is Access 2003 form.

you can use the click event of the label, and combination of property setting ,border width etc

an example is

private sub label0_click()

me.label0.specialeffect=2

end sub

better to use the mouse down and mouse up event to toggle the appearance of the label

Private Sub Label0_MouseDown(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Me.Label0.SpecialEffect = 2
End Sub

Private Sub Label0_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
Me.Label0.SpecialEffect = 0

End Sub

here are the values of the special effect property

The SpecialEffect property uses the following settings.

Setting Visual Basic Description
Flat 0 The object appears flat and has the system's default colors or custom colors that were set in Design view.
Raised 1 The object has a highlight on the top and left and a shadow on the bottom and right.
Sunken 2 The object has a shadow on the top and left and a highlight on the bottom and right.
Etched 3 The object has a sunken line surrounding the control.
Shadowed 4 The object has a shadow below and to the right of the control.
Chiseled 5 The object has a sunken line below the control.
