Create Form with Tabs In Tabular Layout

I'm trying to create a form with tabs and then there is a tabular form in it...
I have a form with a tabular control and one of the tabs contains a subform.

I want to put a button in the subform that will automatically create another tab in the tabular control with another blank copy of the subform in it. I need to do this because the subform contains data from a query that is in a many to one relationship with the data in the main part of the form, and it is possible sometimes that the user will need to enter additional recordsin the subform for the one record that is in the main part of the form.

By having a button that automatically opens a new tab with a blank copy of the subform he will be able to do so easily.

What code should I write for the click event of the button on the subform to accomplish this?

Positioning Tabular Labels
I've recently created a form consisting of stacked and tabular records. In the Form the stacked records appear first followed by the tabular records.

But the labels for the tabular records seem to be stuck within the Form header instead of next to their respective record.


tabs on form not showing in form view in access 2007
Im having a problem with Tabs on the form. I have 7 Tabs(EmpDetails,Skills,HR,Technical,Attachment,Not es and Management) on a form(Employee).

The problem is in design mode I can see the tabs on the form but in form mode and can see the tabs. its just a blank form. I've tried rezing the tabs and also coping properties of other forms that have tabs but I am getting the blank form in Form view mode


SubForm Tabs Only Load When The Tab Is Clicked
I have a form that has 7 subform tabs. The issue I'm having is that it takes a long time for this form to load when a user accesses it. The issue is because all the subform tabs are loading their respective data when the main form is opened.

My idea resolution is to have the first tab populate with data when the form opens but the subform tabs not populate until the user actually clicks on the tab. I know I can achieve the same result by getting rid of the tabs and opening individual forms but my preference is to keep the tab layout as I have it now and only have the subforms load when the user clicks on that tab.


Which type of Form layout is recommended?
I have been working on this project for this guy.

One of the forms I'm working on is linked between three different tables. One option is to have buttons that can be clicked that will take you to different details of each prospect (thus opening up another form) and the other option is to use tabs to enter details of each prospect. Pictures below.

Option 1: The use of buttons. Another form will open up with a click of a button. The button "Stats" at the bottom was clicked and opened up the formStat.

Option 2: The use to tabs. No form opens up with each click. The form is unprintable however, since tabs are being used.

Which option would you recommend or do you prefer? Buttons or tabs.


Creating tabs within a form
Access 2007 has a student template. Within that template they have a form for student details. On the top of that form they have four tabs, General, Guardian Information, Medical Information, Attendance.

How can I create tabs within a form? I'm not sure how many tabs I want. It could be as little as 3 or as many as 10 or more, depending on how complex it is.

Right now, I have my database set up using one table and multiple forms based on that table. I would prefer to set it up as one table and one form with multiple tabs on the form.


Error with Tabs in Access form
I have an issue with Access tabs which I cannot fix it. Before, I had 3 separate forms A, B, C. I tried to create another form where I wanted to create Tabs and copy the other 3 forms in the tabs.

After I did so, it is not allowing me to write in the fields. And the the bottom displaying this message (Control cannot be edited, its' bound to unknown field.)

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or maybe I cannot just copy and paste other forms in a tab?


Mixing Tabular and Stacked Layout
I know it's possible, because I've seen it in templates, but I can't work out how to do it. I want to use both tabular and stacked layouts. Why? My data is (for example)
Label A Label B
Label 1 Field A1 Field B1
Label 2 Field A2 Field B2

I'm using grouping, rather than layouts, at the moment but it doesn't give the same level of tidyness in the formatting. ie When you use the layout the borders of your fields stay aligned; with grouping the field size still depends on the individual contents (which is fine in fields with no borders).

LAYOUT view is gone?
I am using Acces 2010 and I created a Navigation pane. For whatever reason the Layout view is no longer available in the view dropdown. How do I get it back? I want to add more tabs and that action needs to be done in layout view


Form can't see the Tabs
I have several databases that I have inserted tabs with sub forms. When I open the form, I can't see the tabs. I have to use the scroll bar to move the window to where I can see the tabs.

Can you also tell me how to add a control key to be able to navigate to a tab without using the mouse? This last one is an extra but I thought it would be cool.


tabs not viewable
I created a form with 6 tabs across the top of the page. One of my users is not able to see the tabs even though everyone else is able to. When she opens a report then goes back, she can see the tabs temporarily, but this isn't a reliable method. Does anyone have any thoughts on why this is occuring with her computer only, and what I can do to resolve the issue in a way that doesn't affect everyone else


Tabs will not display in Form View
I have a form with several tabs. I began this form as a simple form and then added tabs. The first tab, I copied the contents of my form onto the tab. The second and third tab I inserted subforms. I tested the functionality of all the forms and it worked great.

Then I added another tab to which I inserted another subform, this is where things went wrong. When I proceeded to 'Form View' the tabs were no longer displayed. So, I started all over again, and as soon as I add content to the first tab I lose visibility to the tabs when in 'Form View'.

I can insert subforms into other tabs and everything is fine, I simply cannot put any content into the first tab


Remove items from Tabular Form
I have setup a tabular form with a list of several records. I want the user to be able to update a record and then have it removed from the listing. Is there a way to do this?

I'm using a query that should filter out updated records. I tried to issue a refresh command after the save. The items still stay there. When I close out the form and come back in they are gone.


How do I create a form with multi-tabs
I want to create an easy data entry form for a survey I have designed. The survey has 5 sections: general, school, family, activities, demographics. Instead of having one single form, I want to create a form that has 5 tabs. One for each subject.

This needs to be a part of a larger database where information from several areas is being collected.


Fields copying through tabs
I created a form that has 4 tabs. I have 8 text boxes in the first tab that 7 of which copy over to the other 3 tabs that I can't delete without deleting the original.
