Tab Control Help wanted

P: n/a
I wish to create a Tab control form with several pages.
Page 1 will be the main form, containing a "part type" field.
The rest of the pages subforms detailing specifications for the part types
on page 1

Is there any way I can reference the specication pages to the part type
filed on page 1 so that when then part type changes, the non relevant
specification pages will be hidden leaving just the main form (page 1) and
the correct specification page?

If any one can help with suggests for code to achieve this I would be very
grateful, or indeed an easier way to do it

Each page of an Access Tab Control has a visible property.
If you are selecting the PartType from a combobox, (or entering it in a
textbox), you can use that control's AfterUpdate event to set your visible
properties as you wish.
