    Anchor a new tab control to an existing tab (2000)

    Hi,

    I am finding it difficult, but I dare say there is a easy way to achieve it.

    I have an exisitng tab control page which represents half the form, on a certain tab i want to insert a mini new tab control, but every time i do it, it does not seem to anchor to that tab, but is present on all others.

    Any ideas how to achieve it?
    Best Regards,

    Luke

    I don't think you can nest tab controls. You would be better off creating a subform, inserting the mini tab control on that, and then inserting the subform on the main tab control.

    Bodders is correct: you can't nest tab controls. Tab controls use smoke and mirrors to display only the controls on the active tab and hide the others. A tab control in a tab control would be too difficult. But you can use a subform in a tab page, and a tab control in the subform.
