Undoubtedly an easy answer to this but I can see it.

I want to put some standard text in a report and this text will not vary.

I have put a text box in there, blank, and when I run the report I get a message box. It asks me for the criteria.

When I put in anything such as XYZ in the criteria box this then appears in the report.

How do I get the same standard text in every report.

Is it via a label?

If you need to hard code text, use a label instead of a textbox.

You CAN also use a textbox, but its control source property should be set in this manner:

= "XYZ"

But IMO, a label is the better choice since their purpose is to display fixed text.
