Jump Menu accessibility issue - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

I am receiving the following failed message on accessibility check for the jump menu: [508 (N)] [WCAG 12.4 (2)] Form control without explicit label is found Description. Form control should have non-empty explicit label, or at least non-empty title. Explicit label is a label tied with input by 'for'/'id' attributes. Can someone please tell me where and how I should place the label in my code to fix this issue. I have already tried a number of different places but still not passing the accessibility check. Thanks Sharlene...

    Default Jump Menu accessibility issue

    I am receiving the following failed message on accessibility check for the jump
    menu:

    [508 (N)] [WCAG 12.4 (2)] Form control without explicit label is found
    Description. Form control should have non-empty explicit label, or at least
    non-empty title. Explicit label is a label tied with input by 'for'/'id'
    attributes.

    Can someone please tell me where and how I should place the label in my code
    to fix this issue. I have already tried a number of different places but still
    not passing the accessibility check.

    Thanks

    But of course there should be some label text as well - empty labels are
    useless. And for old IE browsers it's required to explicitly associate
    the label with the form control using a 'for' attribute.
