    tab control (2007)

    I created a good form then realized it was too crowded and though a tab control would be a goo way to organize the information. When I bring the tab control on to te existing form, it is white and I am unable to set the background cclor to match what I desire on the form. How do I do this?

    In previous versions of Access, one could set the BackStyle property of a tab control to Transparent. It wasn't possible to set the background color of a tab control - it always used the button face color specified in the Display Properties control panel.
    I don't know whether it's the same in Access 2007.

    It is still the same in 2007.

    Either set the Back Style to Transparent,

    or put a large Rectangle on each page, behind the other controls, and set the Background Color of these Rectangles.
    Regards

    Thanks for the tip - setting it to transparent does what I need.
