Back Style Property on Tab Controls: Disabled?

P: n/a
I'm using Access 2003. I seem to have suddenly lost the ability to set
the Back Style property of tab controls to "Transparent." Or rather, I
can set the property value as "Transparent" but nothing happens; the
control looks the same as if the property were set to "Normal."
Existing controls set to Transparent are still OK; I just can't make
the new ones transparent.

Does anybody have any idea what's up? Many thanks for any input.

Create a new mdb file. Create a form in the file and add a tab control to it
then add a textbox to the tab control. Can you make this textbox
transparent? If so, then it sounds as if something is corrupted in the
current form or tab control.
