When arranging field names from a database on a label, is there a way to make them act more like a text box that you can drag around, "floating" on the page instead of inline with text? Thanks!

I believe what you are referring to is the Grouping of items. When you use the Wizard to create a form, labels are automatically grouped (connected) to the associated control. You can select one element of a group by holding down the Ctrl key while left clicking the item. You can ungroup items with a right mouse click on the group and select Group->Ungroup or select multiple items to group together by holding Shift while selecting items with left mouse click. Then right click this selected group of items and select Group->Group.

It also occurs to me that you may be referring to the Anchor of a control. Having a control anchored to the Page allows movement wherever. Again, right click the control & select Anchor. Choices are there - most often used is probably 'Page'.
