          Not directly, no. An Item can only be assigned to a single canvas (check the property pallet for the item), however, you can create a second (non-database item) that you would display on the second canvas and then set the item to copy the value from your database item. This can be done through the properties of the second item or you can use code. I prefer the properties approach.

          Craig...

          p.s. It is always helpful to include your Forms Version when asking a question! ;-)
