  1. Click Static on the Data Source tab.

Note: You can enter static text in addition to selecting system or external data sources. This enables you to describe the selected source so the source can be easily identified.

  1. (Optional) Revise the font, border and position specifications to accommodate the text requirements.

Note: This can be done during any stage of the form design.
