tabstrip control doesn't work anymore!

Hi,

I'm running Access 97 on NT 4.0SP4. I have this database written by 3com for
security authentication. In it is a user form with a general subform. the
subform changes based on a tabstrip above it. recently, the form hasn't been
opening with either the button (OpenForm automation error) or by opening
through the database manager (DCOM client automation error)

Finally, I dont know how, we got it to go into to form, but now the tabstrip
is gone. The border space for it is there and the control (in design view) is
there, but it's just a white background, no tabstrip. Under the control's
properties, under the Data tab is:
        OLE Class: TabStrip Control
        CLASS:     TABSTRIP.TabstripCtrl.1
        Enabled:   Yes

I know just enough access to get by, so needless to say have no idea what
that means, where the code is, or how I can fix this problem. I tried
rebooting the server in hopes that that might fix it, but to no avail.

Any help is appreciated. Email, if possible.

-Tony

Possible cause is the that Windows has lost the registration for the tab control.  If it's Tab.ocx - or Tab32.ocx, which you are using (sounds likely as I had a similar problem a while ago) then it needs to be re-registered using Regsvr32.  Instruction on how to do it can be found in the Tab control help file.
