Tab Controls

Hi
If any one can help please, I have an Access db with several tables and several forms, I was going to try putting all of my forms on to a tab page form. I can get the first form to work on page 1 by cut and paste but can't get the other pagers to work. Can this be done or is the tab control only suitable for splitting a single form.
Thanks in advance for any help.

    It can be done but you may need to set the LinkMasterFields/LinkChildFields on your tab control object.
    Actually, if you place many forms on a tab control the performance will suffer since each dataset needs to load when the form first opens. You can speed things up by setting the master/child fields when each tab is clicked on, so that only the viewed records are loaded.
