    You can't do it directly in Access.

    However, you can hide all the tabs and use raised textboxes to jump to your various tab pages. The textboxes can be colored, "sunken" OnMouseDown, "raised" on "MouseUp" Clickgiving them a button appearance. They'll appear like tabs, plus you'll be able to set each to a different width, color and font.

    Actually it's possible.
    Not as an option in Access but by using some superb code by Stephen Lebans. http://www.lebans.com/tabcolors.htm
    I use this code in my application with great success. Thanks Stephen.

    sincerely

    That's absolute dynamite code! It's far from trial and certainly not trivial.
