Hi Guys
I have a Main Form with a tab control where in the 1st page(tad) named Status i am showing multiple subforms from multiple queries.
The purpose of this tab is show a curtrent status of the customer, i have 5 subforms in this tab, is there a way or tips that i should use to make it load faster, what should i do to avoid slowdown in my system, should i populate the information only when click in the tab, please give a hand with this, this is a very important form but i do not want to slow down my sytem
any hints of proper technical details that i should use to minimize the risk of slowing down the db

best regards

Too many subforms can certainly cause performance issues; you might want to load the Subform control ONLY when the user clicks the tab page. You can use the Tab control's Change event for this:

Select Case Me.YourTabControl
  Case 0  '/this is the PageIndex property
    Me.SubformControl1.SourceObject = "YourSubformName"
    Me.SubformControl2.SourceObject = "OtherSubformName"
  case 1
End Select

Also, you should remove those items when the form is closed, to make sure that Access doesn't "remember" this for you:

Me.SubformControl1.SourceObject = ""
Me.SubformControl2.SourceObject = ""
etc etc

So i should have all the subform area blanks, and on the main form include in the ON CURRENT event to load the subforms, plus in the tabswhen they click on the page then load the subforms
Is this correct?
