When using an Ampersand (&) in a Label or Button Caption you get an underscore (Jack_Jill) or nothing (JackJill). To get Jack & Jill you need to double up on the ampersands… Jack && Jill.
Why? In Access the Ampersand is used as a Keyboard Shortcut. So, if you have a Button Caption entered like &File Maintenance which shows as File Maintenance, using Alt + F on your Keyboard will jump you to that button. That’s why we double up, so Access knows we really want to *see* the Ampersand.
