tab control record/ data exchange

P: n/a
Hello,

i have a form with a tab control in it.
the tab control has 3 pages.
all three pages contain forms as children, and they all use the same table.
For example, if a user now enters data in the form on page one, lets say
using record #5 and then switches to page two, he also should use record
#5. But when you switch, the record on page two is set to the first in
the table. How can i solve this problem?

regards, Oli

The forms on the three tab pages need to be subforms of the main form,
linked by your key field(s) for the table. You need to select the record
you want on the main form, and then the subforms should only show the
related record.

However, if all your three forms use the same source table, you only really
need one form.

Try copying and pasting everything on each of your three forms directly onto
the page of the main form. This will give you one form with three pages,
displaying one record at a time.
