Can anyone tell me the coding to add text after a dataset? I want to keep it all in the same text box because of formatting issues. Here's my current coding = Fields.CTD. I want to be able to add the word "Cancer" after CTD so that my data set populates and then the work "Cancer" right after the dataset. I tried using a different text box, but the formatting is all screwed up when I do that. Thanks

Hi David,

You can use a second textbox and play with the size, alignment, formatting. This is a good approach especially if you want to be able to change the text label on the fly.

Otherwise if you want to do it in one textbox, the expression is just a simple string concatenation, e.g. 
=Fields.CTD + " Cancer"
