I was looking at FieldsGridLabel, need to look a few more rows up the Object

Although there is a lot of help file it is a little 'bare-bones'.

You meantioned:

tablename.columnname="MY CAPTION"

This is more useful to us beginners than what is in the help file:

"Use the standard format for making column entries."

Just my 'IBO Beginners' observation.

In IBO, data drives controls, not vice versa. If you don't set
FieldsDisplayLabel props for a column, it will use the SQL column name.

You can set this prop at global level on the connection component (e.g.
IBODatabase or IB_Connection: it's a stringlist, one line per column,

tablename.columnname="MY CAPTION"

I don't have time to research that one today as, amongst a raft of other
urgent stuff on my plate, I'm trying to get the online FAQ to run on a
different server. That's chicken-and-egg, since I'm fairly sure there is
an answer to this question in the FAQ....but the FAQ is down until I solve
the server problem.
