    Well, that's nice, ggeu, but it does not create a label.
    There are two ways of dynamically adding controls. One is like in ggeu's example performed with Load. That assumes that you have a control array, in your case an array of labels, where you can use
    Load Label(n) to create a further instance of this label.
    If you have not, you use
    Code:
      dim lblnew as label
      set lblnew = Form.Controls.Add("VB.Label", "labelname")
    this adds a completely new label to your controls. You have to position and resize it and make it visible, though.

    Can you code it like ggeu please, since, I tried doing it didn't work. Also would be nicer if automatically adds a name instead of I choosing it.

    Example, I have buttn1 so, when Is clicked I want to automatically appear button was clicked (date and time)

    That's exactly what I want. Create a label or anything where appears when the button was clicked, and to make it possible to click it more than once.

    I know it can be a lot for free, but I really need it

    THANKS

    What should happen if you click the button more than once? Should another label appear? Wouldn't mak much sense. You just put the date and time to the existing label. The creation of the new label only happens once then. With the .Move you can move it anywhere on the form.
    The name of the label you supply in the .Add statement is irrelevant. You can't use it in your program anyway. Rather you have to access this label always through the Private declared lbl variable.
    Code:
    Private lbl As Label
    Private Sub btnShow_Click()
      If lbl Is Nothing Then
         Set lbl = Controls.Add("VB.Label", "lblTime")
         With lbl
             .Move 100, 100
             .Visible = True
             'set more properties if necessary
         End With
      End If
      lbl.Caption = Time
    End Sub
