How to resolve Run-time error "2165", You can't hide a control that has the focus?

I am developing an Access 2003 MDB type application with SQL Server as the Back end database.

My application uses 5 tabs as follows:

Misc
UDL_Remediate
UDL_1099
Page856
Page851

I have the user log onto my system and assign the user access rights.
The access rights are stored in a field name strUSERRIGHTS.
In the form load, I use the following logic:

If strUSERRIGHTS = "V" Then
    Me.Page851.SetFocus
    Misc.Visible = False
    UDL_Remediate.Visible = False   <----- Compile error  Run time error '2165'
    UDL_1099.Visible = False
    Page856.Visible = False
End If

When the compiler reaches the line UDL_Remediate.Visible = False,
the system displays the following:

Run-time error '2165':
You can't hide a control that has the focus

Do you know how I can resolve this error?
