How to copy a tab control page in Access 2010 Web database

I'm trying to edit a pre-built web database that comes with sharepoint 2010 in access 2010. From what I've been able to gather you cannot get to the design view for web databases. All I'm trying to do is copy a tab page inside a tab control and add it as a new page with the same layout and controls. Unfortunately the paste button is greyed out and I'm unable to paste controls copied into any part of the form. Is this seriously not an available option?

I was able to easily copy and paste tab pages in a regular access 2010 database.

The design information is not available in that database so copy and paste the design is not available. To do that, you would need the original database with the design information.

This is a sharepoint 2010 template. The web database is the original and only version. Is there any way to convert it to a standard database format?

Sharepoint and web changed a lot in A 2007. I am still using A 2003 so I can't help you. Sorry

Points for trying, thanks. Although I didn't really have a definitive answer I think what you said must apply. The design information is stripped from the db to keep it lite and suitable for the web. You would think Msoft would at least let you copy and paste controls in layout mode... Fortunately I think access 2010 has the same template. I will try to recreate it in access 2010 and then convert to a web database and upload to sharepoint.
