Access "&" does not show in a report label


On an Access report label the "&" sign doesn't show.  How do I correct this in a label?

The & is a special character. You can use it to assign keyboard shortcuts to a label. Eg. giving a label the caption "Order &Nr" will make N be the keyboard shortcut for that label. I believe its Alt-N to move to it.

Either way, if you want to DISPLAY a &, the solution is to double it. E.g. "Belts && Buckles"
