TabControl Syntax

Posted on 2008-06-18
Last Modified: 2011-10-19
This is Access VBA 2003
What would be the correct syntax of this statement?

1. Main Form is frmMaintenance
2. TabControl name-- TabControl
3. Page name[ Roll_YieldException]
4. field [text1]

If IsNull(Forms!frmMaintenance.TabControl.Pages.[Roll_YieldException].[text1]) Then

Any help would greatly be appreciated!

You can address the control from the form. You don't need to specify the container.

strText = Forms!frmMaintenance!text1.text

I have appended a database in 2000 format with a form containing a textbox on a page of a Tab control. The command button on the form adds some text to the text box. The code is shown in the snippet.
Private Sub Command5_Click()
    Text1.Text = "Hello"
End Sub

Open in new window

You forgot to mention that the control (a bound textbox called testfield) is on a subform (Form3) which is on the TabControl page which is in turn on the main form (Form2).

Address it like this:

MsgBox Forms!Form2!Form3!testfield.Text
