Okay, the reason for the one dot is to end the macro expansion, and if a property follows, there will need to be two dots, one to end the macro and the other to separate it as a property. I tried this on Saturday night and it worked, but I forgot to update the notes which I just wiped out Ali, so it works just fine and thank you so much for the example!

Hi Cecil

This is one of those times where & should send up red flags. It's slow as all get out. The better way is:

For x = 1 to 10
   store 'This is label'+alltrim(str(m.x)) to ("thisform.lblTruckNumber" + alltrim(str(m.x)) + ".caption")
endfor
