Using an ampersand in an Access control Caption
If you've ever tried to include an ampersand (&) in the Captionproperty of a control, you've probably found that the results are different from what you expect. For instance,
Caption: This & That
Displays: This _That
That's because Access interprets the ampersand as a means of settingup a shortcut key combination to let you select the control. The trick is to use two ampersands (&&) instead of one in the Caption.
Caption: This && That
Displays: This & That
