Moving Controls and Field Labels Independently
Depending on how you are laying out the controls in your form, you might want to separate the control label from the control. For example, you might want to arrange the form in a tabular format where the control names are positioned over the controls. Separating controls and labels also allows you to move the control so that the field label isn't cut off. Then you can resize the label.
Field Controls: The Most Commonly Used Controls Controls related to fields in a table and their attached labels are discussed in this lesson, but the same methods can be used with other controls that have attached labels, such as combo boxes and list boxes (which are discussed in Lesson 14, "Adding Special Controls to Forms").
To move a control or its attached label by itself, follow these steps:
Deleting Labels If a certain control is self-explanatory (such as a picture), you might want to delete its attached label. To do so, select the label and press Delete.
Separating the label from a control allows you to arrange your controls in all kinds of tabular and columnar arrangements on the form grid. Just make sure that you keep the correct label in close proximity to the appropriate control.
