Access 2010 - I have a check box on a form.  When check box, or check box label has focus the label has a dotted line border around it.  I don't want any border.

Both check box and label have border back colour same as form background, and border style set to transparent.

When some other form control has focus all is good - no border.

how can I stop label being highlighted?  

See attached image.

You can't.

The workaround is to delete the standard checkbox label and add a regular label.

As an aside, the reason a checkbox label is highlighted like that is to make it clear that you can click anywhere within the label's border to check/uncheck the checkbox.  ie: the label is a responsive control itself.
