TabStrip ZOrder setting

I am using Visual Basic 6.
I have a tabstrip (SSTab1) with 9 tabs.
I want to have the 1st tab as the default tab no matter where I was when I compiled the program.
Looking at the help file it looks like I can use Zorder to do this but I can not get it to work.
How do I use the code and where does it have to be placed.?
Also is it possible to insert a fresh tab on a tabstrip between two previously coded tabs?

This should work...
Private Sub Form_Load()
    TabStrip1.Tabs(1).Selected = True
End Sub

Right click the TabStrip control and select Properties.  Use arrow buttons on Tabs tab to scroll to the tab to the left of the one you want to add (if you want a tab between tab 2 and tab3 then scroll to tab 2).  Click Insert Tab.  This will place the new tab right after the previously selected tab.

Oops - wrong tab control - sorry.  This is how you get it to select the 1st tab every time:
Private Sub Form_Load()
    SSTab1.Tab = 1
End Sub

Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to insert a new tab in the middle with this particular tab control.
