How would you you add a label that includes 2 fields, separated by a column in the as an example, If I have one attribute column labeled NAME- with a entry entitled Trujillo and another column labed RM, with a entry of 17 (for the Trujillo entry), how would I go about labeling it on a map, as "Trujillo, RM 17, is it possible to use the field name in the label and separate it with a column?"

Mapping Center Answer:

You need to use this code in Label Expression:

[NAME] & ", RM " & [RM]

where [NAME] and [RM] are your field names. Your labels will look like this:

Trujillo, RM 17
