How can I move a control from one page of a tab to another?

Hello
I have an Access 2000 application. The form has got a tab with 3
pages. There are several text boxes and command buttons on one page. I
need to move them to another page (to free form space for another
control). Is it possible to move controls from one page of a tab to
another, or I'll have to re-create them? If it is possible, please
could you advise, how? I have tried to move one text box. It happily
vanished.
Thank you.

Existing controls cannot be moved on or off of TabPages by dragging them,
but you can cut them to the Windows clipboard and then paste them onto a
different page. Any such controls that had Event Procedures assigned will
need to have the "[Event Procedure]" property setting reset as that will be
lost. The code will still be in the module however;

1. select the object
2. go to edit -> cut
3. select the destination page
4. go to edit -> paste

One other thing ----

When you go to paste on the other page, set that page's background to Normal
first. If it is set to transparent, you will paste the object on the main form
rather than the tab control.

I cannot confirm that in my testing (Access 97).

Yes, copy and paste does work! Thank you everyone for your answers! I
was under an impression that I had tried it some time ago (not very
recently) and I couldn't paste. Controls just disappeared. Now, when I
do it, it works OK. Surprise, surprise...
Thank you very much.
