Why is the same subform showing on all three tab pages?

P: 2
I have inserted three tab controls on a form and wish to insert a different subform on each tab page. I have inserted the first subform (order details) - however, the problem is that it appears on all three tabs. If I delete it on one of the tabs, it just disappears from all of the tabs. It seems that somehow it is not linked to the tab specifically but just sitting on top of all three tabs and so it is showing whether you click on tab 0, tab 1 or tab 2. Can anyone offer any insight into what may be causing this?

Placing controls in tabs can be tricky sometimes. If you try to draw or drag a control you usually end up placing it on the main form floating above the tab.
Simply cut the control(s) you want, click the tab, then click inside it so that tab page is Active.. then paste the control(s).

As Megalog said, this can be problematic with tabbed pages. Just to add to his advice, if the Page, as opposed to the entire Tabbed Control, has been selected, when your cursor moves over it, the majority of the Page will display a black inset. After seeing this simply paste and you should be set.
