special format for a form page

I have a form with 3 pages tab control. The second page has the maximum length.
I would like to know if it is possible to maintain on a fixed position the names of the pages and a text box while scrolling down the page 2. In other words the users would like to see the page name tabs and a certain text box(which is already placed on the page 1) even if they are at the end of the page 2.
Thank you very much,

I don't think it's possible in a page but it's possible if you seperate the "Name of the page" and "Textbox" in a panel, then you divide the panel, you will put the others inside the bottom panel. But the scrolling down will be scrolling the panel instead of the page.

Sure, ...remember you just posted this question this morning...

Your question is but one among the hundreds of questions per day here.
So you must be patient...
Sound fair...?

<The second page has the maximum length.>
What does this mean?   Maximum length of what?
Is this "maximum length" relevant to the question here?

If I am understanding your question, you would simply drop this same "maximum length" field textbox on all of the tabs...

Hi Jeff
Is not about patience my friend and I don't think that remarks of this kind should be brought into discussion.
A form in Access 2003, as you know , has a maximum area of 55.5 cm length x 55.5 cm width.
So when I said maximum length I reffered to this.
I am not sure if you guessed well, I would like to have a same text box frozen and placed up on the both pages so that when the user scrolls down the page he would be able to see the text box in questio something like command "freeze window" in Excel.
I will see your database and I will come back.
Thank you

Remarks of what kind?
All I stated is that sometimes it takes a bit longer than 8 hours for experts to get around to a question...

Your question:
<Isn't anyone else to help me? >
Seemed like you were insinuating that no one was willing to help...
...Which was not the case, as you can see I took the time to create a sample file for you...

So perhaps this was a misunderstanding...

<I would like to have a same text box frozen and placed up on the both pages so that when the user scrolls down the page he would be able to see the text box in question something like command "freeze window" in Excel.>

Then (If I am understanding your request) this is not possible directly in a Tabbed control in Microsoft Access, unless you are using a subform in the tab and are scrolling down through "records".

A simple workaround might be to put this field in the Form Header...

Can you post a simple sample of your DB, so I can see the design of your form, in order to propose a workaround?

Sample database notes:
1. Back up your database(s).
2. Combine the front and back ends into one database file.
3. Remove any startup options, unless they are relevant to the issue.
4. Remove any records unless they are relevant to the issue.
5. Delete any objects that do not relate directly to the issue.
6. Remove any references to any "linked" files (files outside of the database, Images, OLE Files, ...etc)
7. Remove any references to any third party Active-x Controls (unless they are relevant to the issue)
8. Remove, obfuscate, encrypt, or otherwise disguise, any sensitive data.
9. Compile the code. (From the database window, click: Debug-->Compile)
10. Run the compact/Repair utility.
11. Remove any Passwords and/or security.
12. Post explicit steps to replicate the issue.
13. Test the database before posting.

In other words, ...post a database that we can easily open and immediately see the issue, and if applicable, also include a Graphical representation of the Exact results you are expecting.

Thanks
