    Unanswered: Can I put subforms on pages of a tab control?

    As it says on the tin!!

    I have 3 subforms on my main form but need to add 2 more. Rather than have a form that scrolls off the page, I'd like to add a tab control with 5 pages and place a subform on each.

    I've tried doing this but when I place my subform on 1 page, it's visible on them all. What am I doing wrong, or is it just impossible??

    Yes you can do it. You just have to make sure you highlight the page before you paste the subform. Copy the subform, select the page (make sure you have the small squares around the edges) then paste the subform on the page.

    What you have is the subform is 'floating' above the tab control.

    Also, be aware that adding 5 subforms to a single form will make the form take longer to load. I created a form very similar to the one you are describing. After the customer had been using the database for a month it became very slow to load.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll give it a try in the morning

    Hopefully it won't slow down too much. We already operate across a very slow network (10mbps) so anything that affects performance WILL be noticed!!!
