    Tab controls without tabs (Access XP)

    Now this is going to sound stupid (probably is). I want to use a 'tabless' tab control as the core of my menu system. Buttons on the first page of the control will each link to a separate page in the control, giving the illusion of a new menu form or page.... so far, so good. Now for the stupid part: when I set the Style property of the tab control to None, the visible tabs indeed disappear as wished. But how can I now move from tab page to tab page in Design View, in order to design them? Ctrl + Tab, which works in Form View, doesn't work in Design View. Yes, I know I can design them roughly with the Style property set to Tabs, then switch it to None. But I want to be more precise in positioning controls on the tab-pages and I have very little spare room. There must be a way of doing this!

    Mike,

    You can use the Object Drop Down on the Formatting Toolbar. Just select the Page from there.

    Silly me! Thanks, of course that's how you do it! The object drop-down is one of those navigation aids I've never used. That'll teach me.
