    Labeling Forms verses Report Labels

    Asked by mleonardASPS on July 01, 2015 at 11:41 AM

    Hi, I have a pretty complex form where I didn't use labels but included only "example text" to save on space and visual confusion.  But now when the reports are generated there are no labels for that section. I was hoping the properties window would allow an alternative label or at least the ID would show up, but no.  Can you provide any suggestions or is adding a label the only way?

    I believe adding labels would be the only way.  You could add the labels and then set the visibility of them to not be displayed:


    This would allow you to both have field labels for your reports and hide the labels in the form.

    Since the reports labels are directly based on the field labels, this would be the only way as far as I know.

    If you have any further questions, let us know and we will be happy to help.
