I am trying to reference a Page (tab) in a Macro. The page name is "MIVPage".  I would like reference this in a Macro where I can change the ENABLE property. What is the syntax that I need?

I am changing the tab control at the time I "Load" the form based on login credentials.  I am getting an error using "Me."  Should I put the form name here instead?

Yes.. think this should work... It may be worth considering using a default on the page so is always not enabled when form opens, but this may depend on what actions are happening with the form laod, and what functionalilty you are building...

Here's my syntax.
I'm still getting an error that it is misspelled or refers to a control that doesn't exist
My form Name is "frm_Mfg_MIVS"
Tab is "TabCtl1"
forms!frm_Mfg_MIVS!TabCtl1.Pages("MIVPage")

Open in new window

Where are you firing the code from? is it in the on open event of the form that contains the tab pages?
If so
Me.TabCtl1.Pages("MIVPage").enabled = true
Should work...

I just found the answer.  I am changing this through a 'SetProperty' macro.  The only refernece that I need is "MIVPage".  I do not need to reference form, tab, or page. I put this where it is asking for object and worked.
thanks for your help.
