In design view edit the form's Caption property.

Otherwise, in VBA code..

application.CurrentProject.Name
application.CurrentProject.FullName

Okay folks ... I should know this but...

Specifically, I want to display the "AppTitle" on a form.

Do I add a new "Label" onto the form?  If so, how exactly do I refer to the "AppTitle"
Do I add a new "Text Box" to the form? If so, how exactly do I refer to the "AppTitle"

I have tried a few things but nothing works yet.

Thanks again!

OK ... add a Label, then in code:

Me.YourLabelName.Caption = CurrentDB.Properties("AppTitle")

Or in a text box:

Me.YourTextBoxName = CurrentDB.Properties("AppTitle")
