Access 2007 Form in "Tabbed Documents" view -- icon dimmed, cannot access form

I have an Access Database with many different VBA Event Procedures.

The database is displayed in the "Tabbed Documents" view. (Access Options > Current Database > Document Window Options)

After running a specific Event Procedure, the "Form" icon on the "Tab" for one specific Form becomes dimmed out, and I can no longer click on that tab. The Form is still active and works perfectly, but if I click away from it to another Form, I cannot bring it back to the foreground by clicking on its tab the way I normally would, it's as if the Tab is disabled.

If I use a button on another form to bring my "dimmed out" main form back into view, I can at least get to it and work on it, but still, I cannot get back to it using its tab. (In other words, pulling it back into focus does not fix the dimmed out tab.)

If I completely close that particular form and re-open it, everything is back to normal and the tab works until that Event Procedure is run again.

I don't see the event procedure doing anything strange, and I'm assuming it's just a property of the form that is getting modified, but I can't for the life of me figure it out or find anything about it online.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Sorry, I didn't know what portion of the code could possibly have caused the issue, and the VBA code was hundreds of lines long.

In any case, I completley re-wrote the code a different way and it seems to have fixed it...
