    Unanswered: Search for a Control Name across forms

    I have a form with about 10 tabs setup and we want to give the user the ability to search across the forms for a certian word. This word could be in a label or a control. Is there away to easily build this functionality?

    How are these tabbed pages set up? Do they contain subforms or simply controls tied to the form's RecordSource? And why would you need to search for a certain word in a label? You as the developer place the text in the labels and it should be static.
    Hope this helps!

    The problem with making anything that fools are so darn ingenious!

    Do you know how to iterate the controls in a form and check the values of the respective properties for the phrase? If so then you know what to do. If not let us know. And yes -I would agree - allowing a user to search for text in a label caption is unusual to say the least.
