Duplication of controls on tab control

I have an Access app that consists of many tabs.  I'm being asked to create a new tab so I've copied one of the existing tabs.  Now when I change the text in one of the labels on my new tab it changes the text in the label on the tab I copied from also.  I've changed the name of the label but that doesn't seem to work.  It appears that the existing tabs have some kind of "master" controls on them but I don't know how to access them.  Any ideas?

Access doesn't have control collections, so it's not possible to change one control's label and have it affect other controls. Most likely you have placed the label on the Form and not on a Tab Page. You can see if that's the case by moving the tab control a bit; if the label doesn't move, then it's not on the Tab control.

When you copy/paste to a Tab Page, you MUST select the Page where you want the copy to go, otherwise the copy will be either (a) on the tab itself or (b) on the form hosting the tab control.
