    Unanswered: tab control disappeared

    I created a form which has 5 control tabs at the top. It used to work just fine, but now the tabs no longer appear in form view, though they still appear in design view. I have checked the properties of the tab control, and "visible" is set to yes, and "display when" is set to always.

    Does anyone know what I've done???

    Thanks!

    Do you need to use the scroll bar and/or resize your form to see them?

    If I resize the tab control height, I can see them again. But, at some point, it resets again, and I need to back and reset the height so you can see the tabs. Any idea what is going on?

    I am not sure what it is, but sometimes you have to save the form in design view(when you can see them), then goto form view, and if you can see them still save the form again. Close the form open again and it should be fixed. I have found that is a weird deal with access sometimes.

    Have you ever thought about thinking on purpose?

    How'd you finally get it to work? The above mentioned method or did you figure out something else?

    Yes, it was a matter of fitting on the screen. I actually allowed the use of scrollbars, and since I've done that, I've had no problem.

    Thanks again!
