If you refer to the SSTAB (Tabed Dialog) then:

Private Sub Form_Activate()
SSTab1.Tab = 1   'or any other number, The number is the tab number you want to set focus on.
End Sub

I am using VBA actually and I dont have the tab property.  I have a tab called MultiPage1 and the tab name is Page1.  My options under MultiPage1. are

pages
tabindex
etc.

I tried MultiPage1.TabIndex = 1 but no dice it still goes to another tab.

I'm guessing here, but try:

Page1.Pages(1)

Where 1 is the tab number.

Let us know.

Or maybe Page1.Pages = 1

But I'm unfamiliar with that vba tab.

In that case I suggest you ask for refund @ customer support, and replace the question, and this times specifying its VBA and Multipage control. :)

Good luck,

How about try these other combinations ...

MultiPage1(0).SetFocus
 - or -
MultiPage1.Pages(0).SetFocus
 - or -
MultiPage1.TabIndex = 0
 - or -
MultiPage1.TabIndex(0).SetFocus

Remember that some Collections start with Index = 0, usually "Controls" collections.

The answer is just .Value in VBA.  MultiPage.Value = 1
