Jeanne & Klaus,

LockText is the Lock text check box & traversalOn is the Can receive 
keyboard focus, correct?

The former is empty & the later is checked in the properties' Field tab.

FYI, I went back to the New Control, created a standard (1st choice) 
field, put the script of my cloned label field into it, and it worked 
fine.  In the cloned field I cannot select a char or word, or place a 
selection point in the text.
