I am ballfed.  I am an Access programmer, and want to use a TabStrip, which I have used in some prior projects.  

I have a main form, added the Microsoft ActiveX TabStrip control.  Set the Tab properties for 10 tabs.  I see the tabs.

However, when I try to add the Subform control on any tab, it attaches to the mainform.  

It also doesn't let me click anything but the first tab in design mode, but in "run" mode, I can cliick all tabs.

however, can't put any controls on!!!

I am using Access 2007 with ActiveX Tabstrip 6.0.  

HELP!

why not just use the Access Tab Control object.

to add a subform to the Tab, make sure that you select the Page where you want to add the subform, before dragging and drop or inserting a subform to the page

Duh.  Didn't realize that.  I did VB for years and years, and always used the ActiveX.  Thanks. Worked Perfect
