I have a VB 6 application that uses the sstab tab strip.  It has 6 tabs.  I need to add a 7th tab and place it between tabs 2 and 3. All tabs have objects on them and code associated with the objects.  I can add a tab but not change the order so that the new tab is placed between tabs 2 and 3.  Can anyone tell me how to re-order the sstab tab strip tab sequence.

At design time it is not possible. Maybe at run time it is possible. The Tabstrip (so not the sstab control) allows reordering the tabs by just changing the index. You can try this for the sstab as well.
Another idea is to edit the form file outside VB. Maybe you can change it in the form file (use notepad, make sure you have backup)

I used the wordpad to edit the tab order as suggested by Mirkwood.  It worked perfectly.  You earned  the 100 points.  Thanks a lot!
