Tab control within a tab control

P: 12
hello all,

i am creating a form and would like to have the various pages of the tab control, have tab controls of their own. however if i try and put a "mini" tab control within the larger one, it is visible on the other pages.

is there anyway around this? or any other alternative solutions?
using access 2003, windows xp

thanks for the help

As a quick & dirty workaround, you might try hiding the embedded tab control, until focus is given to the Parent control inside which you want to see your embedded tab.

The trick with working with tabbed controls is that you have to select the individual tabbed page first and then place your controls, or they will, as you'ved seen , show on all pages! Course there may be times when you want them to show on all pages!
