I have a two-page tab control with subforms on each page. I need to run code when the user selects a tab page. The tab page On Click event fires when the body of the tab page is clicked, but I can't get it to fire when the tab name is clicked. I've also tested this with a blank tab control on a blank form, with the same result. So how do I run code at the point the user selects the page?

just to confirm, is this form developed using visual studio or msaccess?

Beg pardon - brain not in gear yet after the Bank Holiday! I meant to put it just in the msaccess area. I also accidentally gave it 500 points - but I'll let it go at that (Happy Easter.....)

Trust you had a good Easter, nice long weekend :)

Try using the On change method instead

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
