Farpoint Spread disappearing...

I have a VB6 project using vaSpread 2.5.55.  A form that contains an MS Tab control (v6.0, SP3) has the spread on three tabs.  The spreads are visible at design-time, but at run-time they disappear.  Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,
Preece

I solved the problem of the spread disappearing.  It wasn't really disappearing.  It had to do with the way the previous developer coded it.  
But, I still have a problem with the spread and the  tabbed dialog.  There are 8 tabs, three of which contain a vaSpread.  The three spreads are named the same and are a control array.  What happens is the spread on the first tab will appears on the third tab overlaying what is on the third tab.  Yes, I have ensured that each spread is contained within its respective tab.  I am considering going to Spread 3.0.  But am unsure if this will resolve the problem...

Any suggestions?  

Thanks in advance,
Preece

I would prefer to place the 'spread' on a frame control(which will not have any borders). Then, when the respective tabs are clicked, the corresponding frames shall be brought to the fore with the 'zorder' and all other frames visibility shall be set to false.

Hope this would be useful.
