Show or hide object tabs

Show or hide object tabs
Views: 421
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

Show or Hide Tabs in Microsoft Access 2007 Icon

Hide The Object List in 07

Hide The Object List in 07 Icon
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

Hide tab macro Icon
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

Routine to run/export queries Icon
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
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.).

I am creating a form where I have an option group with 7 options and a tab control with 7 pages.

How can i hide tab items again after it loses focus?

How can i hide tab items again after it loses focus? Icon
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.


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.
