Show or hide object tabs

Microsoft Office Access 2007 provides a new way to work with the tables, forms, reports, and other objects in a database. Instead of opening each object in a separate window, Access now places objects in a single pane and separates them with tabs. Tabs are the default behavior for all databases created with Office Access 2007.

Show or Hide Tabs in Microsoft Access 2007
Access 2007 introduces the tabbed document format found in other Microsoft Office products. In some cases, you may wish to hide these tabs to change the look and feel of your database or more closely simulate the appearance of older versions of Access.


Hide The Object List in 07
How do I hide the Object List in 07? My user keeps fooling with it and causing general havoc. Consequently, when she opens it, I want the Switchboard to show and not the object list.

This was easy to do in '03 so I suppose Microsoft had to make it unintuitive in

Hide tab macro
I'm (trying to) create an access database containing a form with multiple tabs. My objective is to make a button with a module that will hide (make not visible or disable) one of the tabs if a combobox has a specific value. Essentially, I want to hide the tab 'qA' if the combobox has a value of 'AA'. The problem appears to be referring to the correct tab within the form. I've been trying to do this for a couple of hours and have been through many error messages


Routine to run/export queries
Looking for some links to examples that do the following (or something close):

1. user would create a whole bunch of queries themselves (using Access)
2. form that lets the user runs these queries to display results and/or
export
3. Would be good if user could select multiple queries and get multiple
resultsets to display or be exported to
an excel file with multiple worksheets. Example: user selects 5 queries and wants an excel file made with 5 tabs with the 5 different outputs of the queries, or the outputs of the 5 queries show in a form with multiple tabs in Access (hide/show tabs, set recordsources at runtime etc.).


Option Control to hide/show page tabs
I am creating a form where I have an option group with 7 options and a tab control with 7 pages. What I want to happen is when a user selects an option only the corresponding page tab is displayed, all the others are hidden. I would also want all the tabs hidden when opening a new record and no selection has yet been made.

Hide the Ribbon When Access Starts
By default, Microsoft Office Access 2007 does not provide a method for hiding the Ribbon. This topic describes how to load a customized ribbon that hides all of the built-in tabs. Learn how to hide the Ribbon when opening a database.


Can the Command Button "Caption" property be changed using VBA
I would like to use one Command Button to either display or hide a list. My thought is to set an Object value to either "0" or "1" and then an If/Then Statement to perform the action. I would also like to change the Button's "Caption" to something like either "Show" or "Hide"depending on the Object value. Otherwise I'll just have two Buttons stacked over each other and display the appropriate one depending on the Visible status of the list.


How can i hide tab items again after it loses focus?
I have created a form which contains a tabbed control with 3 tabs (Start, User 1 and User 2)

I have added a password protect code to the tabs (User 1 and User 2) so that when clicked, the user is prompted for a password.

I have created the user input as a string and have hidden the tab content by using a tag on each item and the visible command. the content remains hidden and returns to the start tab.

If the correct password is entered, the items with the specified tag become visible.

Its only a very basic password protection and isn't protecting vital content but I have a problem I would like to fix.

This is the issue.
If I select the user 1 tab and enter the password correctly, then I click the user 2 tab and enter the password correctly THEN click the User 1 tab again.I am prompted again for thepassword (which is fine), but all the items on the tab are still visible.

I want to be able to re-hide the tab items when it loses focus so if I switch back to the tab, it is clear. I am unsure on how to do this.

The code is entered on the OnChange Property of the tabset.

[CODE]

Another option I was thinking of was to hide the other user tabs when the password is entered correctly on the selected tab. Not sure how to do that either.

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

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.


Split DB slow in development mode
I have noticed that since splitting my db, it is extremely slow in the development mode. Both FE and BE live on a network and in the same folder (for development). The DB has always been on a network drive, so that didn't change after the split. This DB consists of a main form that has many tabs. On some of the tabs there are many subforms. When I click on a subform or a tab or a field, I have to wait a long time before the object I clicked on has the focus. This is really annoying (especially when I click on the wrong object ) and takes me forever to get anything done. Do you have any suggestions on why this happened after the split and what I can do to speed things up?

Big form with 5 tabbed control 1 tab via 1 table and the other tabs via another table
I have a form with a 5 tabs in it via tab control, 4 of the tabs are based on one table and one of the tabs is based on another table. The two tables share a unique key, both named 'ID' that allow me to join the data from both tables successfully.

I have been trying everything to attempt to synch the 'ID' on the first table (the 4 tabs of data) with the 'ID' on the second table (the 1 tab of data) together so that the one tab will always and only show data that goes with the primary table (the 4 tabs).

I have tried to use filter on the form and it doesn't work or render an error.

There will always be exactly a 1-to-1 relationship between the two tables.
