Access form - show "description of control" in control (i.e. when no room for a header on form)
Posted on 2014-04-01
I have a very full access form with no space for headings.
Somebody on EE helped me with this a few years ago but I can't find the solution now!
I want to put a value in a control that tells the user what the control is.
E.g. I want to show <Make of Car> in a control before the user keys in the "make of car". Note that this is NOT a default value , it is a description of what the control holds.
I think the previous solution (which I can't find) had a value in the FORMAT of the control ...
something like : @; <Make of Car>
