I have a form that has a tab control on it that has four tabs.  One of the tabs has a subform on it and one field.  I would like for the following to occur when the user clicks on the 4th tab.

If the one field on the tab is not null then the subform should not be visible else the subform should be visible.  This works on non-tabed forms using the on current but I cant seem to get this to work on a form with tab ctl using the on tab click.

Try this:

Private Sub TabCtl1_Change()
On Error GoTo Error_Routine

'commits any changes
If Me.Dirty Then Me.Dirty = False
Select Case Me.TabCtl1.Value
    Case Is = 0   'run code for page1...(Me.Page1.PageIndex = 0)
        .............................................
        TabCtl1.Pages.Item(0).SetFocus
    Case Is = 1   'run code for page2......(Me.Page2.PageIndex = 1)
        .............................................
        TabCtl1.Pages.Item(1).SetFocus
    Case Is = 2   'run code for page3.....(Me.Page3.PageIndex = 2)
        .............................................
        TabCtl1.Pages.Item(2).SetFocus
    Case Is = 3   'run code for page4.....(Me.Page4.PageIndex = 3)
        If Not IsNull([yourField]) then
           Me!Subform4.Visible = False
        Else
           Me!Subform4.Visible = True
        End If
        TabCtl1.Pages.Item(3).SetFocus
End Select
Exit_Continue:
        Exit Sub
Error_Routine:
        MsgBox "Error# " & Err.Number & " " & Err.Description
        Resume Exit_Continue

End Sub

PS: You have to replace the subform/field names I used with your own.  Also the dotted lines indicate optional code that you may want to add.

<One of the tabs has a subform on it and one field>  Do you mean the 4th tab has a subform and a control?

GRayL,

Yes, only the fourth tab has everything that my question involves.  When the user clicks on that 4th tab then the event occurs (only on the items that pertain to that tab and that screen).

puppydogbuddy,

I will try...I think that I would only need one section of your code...I would only want to apply this event on one tab/field

You definitely want the If Me.Dirty .....as the first line of your code in the tab control........it centrallly commits (saves) all changes that have occured on any of the individual tabs, reducing the code that has to be written for the individual tabs.  Also, if you only use case 4, be sure you have a case else so that you will be protected from the possibility of "fall thru" code.

oops! typo....the prior comment above should have referred to case 3 (for the 4th tab) not case 4.  Tab page indexes start with 0.
