disconnect name from field Upload Images   Link  
Harold Laski 
6 days ago
I have imported 20 fields from a table to a form. Of course the name of the field gets imported at the same time as the field itself. Is there a way to "disconnect" them individually or as a group so that I have the freedom to move them whereever I want. I have been deleting the field name and then creating another one. Is there a simpler way?  I used to program in a database called Alpha Five.  All I would have to do is right click on the field and click on a "de-link" command and the title of the field would be freed from the field itself.

Just click on the label and hit Ctrl-X (cut).  Click on the background and hit Ctrl-V (Paste).  
You can do multiple labels at a time.  Select just the label and Cut / Paste and they will be disconnected.

I you ever want to reconnect you have to do them individually.  Cut the label the click on the field to select it.  Ctrl-V (Paste) and the label will be re-linked.

Hitting Ctrl-X does disconnect them but it also erases the label from the field.  Rt clicking on the label unlinks them.  I found that Ctrl-Y on the background after a Ctrl-X does not do anything.  My question is therefore is there a way to disconnect multiple labels since clicking on multiple labels greys out the "change to" butoon after rt-clicking on a label.

Re-read my instructions.  
Select just the labels.  Cut them.
Click background.  Paste them.  They should come in at the top left of the form (or report).
They are now disconnected.
