Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing screen space with tabs, part of Access 2007: Forms and Reports.
The Tab control can be used to add extra space to your form or to group similar or…related objects together.…Adding a Tab control is a great way to organize your form, but it's not going…to work very well on a printed report, since you will only be able to see the…first tab when it's printed and trying to click on a tab on a paper report…doesn't work very well.…But for forms, they work great.…I am going to take a look at this Controls Form. I will right click and say…Design View. ThenRibbon we go ahead and add a Tab object, clicking this Tab Control…up here in the Ribbon.…I will drag out a box in the bottom of my detail section and that will add…two tabs to my form.…
I can add additional tabs using this Insert Page button up here on the Ribbon.…Press that once to add a third tab and a fourth tab.…I can also add Tabs by right-clicking on the Tab Control and choosing Insert Page.…If I want to delete a tab, just activate it, right-click, and say Delete Page.…And if I want to rearrange pages, I will right-click again and say Page Order.…
