However for some reason you decide you no longer need the label and you delete it. A few hours later you realise you made a mistake and think to yourself “Damn! I wish I hadn’t done that” You try and fix the problem by creating a new label, however The first problem is the label won’t stay there! It vanishes! You can solve that problem by entering the label and pressing a dot, or any text really. You’ve added a caption in the label and it will stay. But although the New Label is adjacent to your text box, it won’t move with the Textbox, it’s not fixed, not attached to it. What you do is you click on the label do:- “Cut” then click on the text box and do “Paste”. Now your label is reattached to your text box…..
