How do you setfocus to another tab in the navigation control form?

For example, I am in the Orders tab but when a user double clicks on the item number, I want the focus to be set to the NavProducts Tab and in the NavigationSubform of the NavProducts tab, I want it to display just that one record in the subform for Products.

Thanks in advance.

The subform control names do not change.  They remain the same in the Navigation Form.

A technique that can work is to use On Dbl Click Event for the control that you have.
With the new embedded macro you can use the GoToControl option to move to that form.

I ran out of time to use that navigation form.  I opted to build custom ribbons in xml instead.  Thank you for your help.

It didnt.  I just wanted to assign points for taking the time to try and help.  I now see that I left you out of the points.  I'd be happy to split them between you both, if i knew how to change it.
