Form labels based on table in access - Survey database

I am building an access database to record a staff survey. I am in the early stages and have very little knowledge. Currently I have 2 tables - tbl_questions and tbl_responses.

I would like to have a form where the labels contain the questions from the tbl_questions, I will set up a combo box or check boxes for the responses to populate the responses table.

How do I populate the form labels with the questions from tbl_questions?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


although it would be possible to change the labels according to a text from a table it is very much easier to use textboxes as labels. You can format them like a label (no border, transparent background, locked =true and enabled = false) so the user sees no difference, but you can then simply bound them to the question field of the query where your form is bound to.


Here's a sample to get you going.
