Changing a tab index when a control has focus

I'll keep this basic. In Microsoft Access VBA, I am designing a form with 3 options, let's call them A, B, and C, that are grouped together, using the radio button control. So, I've got 3 radio buttons.

To the right of my radio buttons, I have a tab control with 3 tabs, each corresponding to an option. When I select option A, I want tab A to be on top. When I select Option B, I would like Tab B to come to the top, and so forth with option and tab C. Also, when one option is selected, the other tabs should be unavailable.

for example:

Private Sub optA_GotFocus()
     Me.tabA.Enabled = True
     Me.tabB.Enabled = False
     Me.tabC.Enabled = False
End Sub

I'm running in circles. I don't know why, with all the resources I have, I can't figure this out. Someone make a suggestion please.

In the on click event of your frame object that holds your options add this code.

Private Sub YourFrameName_Click()
    If Me.YourFrameName.Value = A Then
        Me.TabNameA.Enabled = True
        Me.TabNameA.SetFocus
        Me.TabNameB.Enabled = False
        Me.TabNameC.Enabled = False
    ElseIf Me.YourFrameName.Value = B Then
        Me.TabNameB.Enabled = True
        Me.TabNameB.SetFocus
        Me.TabNameA.Enabled = False
        Me.TabNameC.Enabled = False
    ElseIf Me.YourFrameName.Value = C
        Me.TabNameC.Enabled = True
        Me.TabNameC.SetFocus
        Me.TabNameA.Enabled = False
        Me.TabNameB.Enabled = False
    End If
End Sub
