Chapter 4. Working with Fields > Adding a Caption to a Field

Adding a Caption to a Field

A field caption is text displayed alongside a field to better describe its purpose and content. You can add a caption to a field, and later when you create forms and reports that use this field, Access automatically displays the caption you specify. Captions can contain up to 2,048 characters, including spaces. If you don't specify a caption, Access uses the field name as the field caption in any forms or reports you create.

Set the Caption Property

Display the table in Design view, and then click a field for which you want to set a caption.

Click the Caption box.

Type text you want to appear as the field's caption.
