I'm a light user of VB and just know the basics.

I'm stacking to labels of info from two different fields on top of each other, and need to squeeze them together as close as possible.

I tried superscript and subscript but I don't get exactly what I want

When I do just a simple label, I can change the "Y Axis" in the symbol editor, is there a way I can do that with VB script?


Thanks for any help!

You can enter a negative value in the leading property--try -1 or -2.

Also, never mind that "negative lead" doesn't exist in the physical world.
