For some reason, my Calendar control doesn't work when contained within a tab control. I have date fields within Tab Pages that when clicked, should call a Calendar control to select a date and enter it in the text field. However, this doesn't work. Can one of you Experts please help? Many kind thanks in advanced!

Please explain a little more if you could... is the calendar control on a second form?  If so, is the problem that the form won't open?  If the calendar control is on the main form, is it made visible?  If so, is it behind the tab control and therefore, while visible, still not viewable?

Okay, Mike, thanks. Here's more explanation: There are 5 Calendar controls on the same form: 3 are contained within a page of its Tab Control, and the other 2 are on the form, outside the tab control. The two that are not in the tab control work like they're supposed to, but not the three within the tab control. Moreover, before adding the tab control to the form, all 3 Calendar controls worked just fine. I've increased the points to 350. Many kind thanks in advanced. Below is the source code:

Private Sub Calendar1_Click()
txtUserChg = SignedInUser
txtDateP2PEntered = Now()
txtPTPDATE = Calendar1.Value
txtCheckNum.SetFocus
Calendar1.Visible = False
End Sub

Private Sub Calendar2_Click()
txtDATE = Calendar2.Value
Me.txtTime.SetFocus
Calendar2.Visible = False
End Sub

Private Sub Calendar3_Click()
txtDaterec1 = Calendar3.Value
Me.txtAmount1.SetFocus
Calendar3.Visible = False
End Sub

Private Sub Calendar4_Click()
txtDATEVER = Calendar4.Value
txtTAPE.SetFocus
Calendar4.Visible = False
End Sub

Private Sub Calendar5_Click()
  Me.txtSentCD = Calendar5.Value & " - " & Format(Now(), "hh:mm:ss")
  Me.txtAmount1.SetFocus
  Me.Calendar5.Visible = False
End Sub

Also, it's not behind the tab control, nor any other controls, therein, so that's not an issue. It is invisible, initially, by made visible once clicked, as the code, in previous submission, illustrates.

Hi Jhon,

Why don't you try to put the full path to the Tab (Tab Name) when calling the calendar control, for example:

txtPTPDATE = Calendar1.Value

should be

txtPTPDATE = Forms![YourMainForm].Form![Page41].Calendar1.Value

Where Page41 is the Tab Name

I get the following error, when I try that, Jaffer:
Run-time error '438': Object doesn't support this property or method.
txtPTPDATE = Forms![Collections Admin].Form![PgSales-Verified].Calendar1.Value

Hey, Jaffer--I'll be damned...apparently it's suddenly working. I don't know what was wrong, maybe a typo in my code or something, but all is well now. Thanks!

You're most welcome, Jaffer--Thank you! And, hopefully, you will answer more questions from me in the future...as I have many questions and you, apparently, have many answers. You know Access very well. I haven't touched it in about a year--and, even then, didn't know the answers to any of these questions you've been so kind enough to answer for me.
