Show/Hide Specific Tabs on Record Change

I have a form using Tabs.  I know how to allow a specific tab to only show when the value of a combo is correct, but I can't get it to auto-update when moving through current records.  Everytime a already-entered record is on the screen I need it to check pmStyle.  
If it's "A" then
Me.TabA.Visible = True
Me.TabB.Visible = False
If it's "B" then
Me.TabA.Visible = False
Me.TabB.Visible = True

Like I said, I can do this with a combo and I can do it onFormLoad but only for the first record that shows then it stays the same.  How I can take that same code and run it every time you flips to a different record?

That being said, it sounds as if you should call your code from the Click or Change event of the combo.

Sub Combo1_Change()
if Combo1.text = "A" then

***Can a Mod move this to Access Please?***
That's what I'm doing right now but it doesn't help because I need it to check this condition as soon as each new record loads into the form when moving through them.

Ah Access. Try using the form's OnCurrent event.
