General Tab Control - Part 3

So, confused and I don't know why, other than I am doing this form a little different. The question on your website for General Tab Control - Part 2 is almost what I am wanting to do.

This is a tab control form-pages with the tabs type set to "NONE" instead of set to buttons or tabs. I want the buttons to be on the left side of the form and not use the top buttons to keep the pages from going way across the window.

I have subforms on each of the tabs for the items on the left which are command buttons.

My first tab is blank to hide the actual first tab. I know there is other was to hide them by making it visible or unvisible.

I will be having other areas of this form with other more tabs on this to do other things.

I am attaching my database so you can see how I am wanting it to work. The form I am working on is fMaintenance.

We will be using a pen scanner to scan in and out (check in and out items) which is working in excel right now.

Database name is checkin checkout.
