    Do you mean a label instead of a text box? The ampersand & is used in captions to specify the accelerator character, indicated by underscoring the character. So, if you set the caption of a label to &TransactionDate, you will see TransactionDate, meaning that you can jump to the corresponding text box by typing Alt+T.

    To display an ampersand in a caption, insert two ampersands in a row: A && B
