MSAccess Page Controls

I am trying to set up controls to make the tabs (pages) on my form visable/hide based on
the security of the user.  I've got some code to copy, but I don't know how to set up the
reference to the tabs.  I understand that pages(0) refers to the first tab of the form.  What is the "TabMain" referring to?
Thanks, Lynn
Set rstRoles = db.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
        If Not rstRoles.EOF And Not rstRoles.BOF Then
            rstRoles.MoveFirst
            Do Until rstRoles.EOF
                    Select Case rstRoles.Fields("roleName")
                    Case "Processor"
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(3).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(4).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(5).Visible = True
                    Case "Security Administrator"
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(1).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(4).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(5).Visible = True
                    Case "System Administrator"
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(0).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(4).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(5).Visible = True
                    End Select
                rstRoles.MoveNext
            Loop
        End If
    Set rstRoles = Nothing
    Set db = Nothing

TabMain is the tab control itself, which includes the pages and tabs.

I am still confused.  
I have a form named frmReportGenerator, with pages (tabs) named and in the following order:
Report Parameters, Recipeint-Regions, Sites-Region, Recipients, Sites, Regions, Email Message,
Users, User Roles.

To hide the last two pages (Users and User Roles), what is the correct syntax?  

I've attached a printscreen of the form for reference. printscreen-frmReportGenerator.doc printscreen-frmReportGenerator.doc

What is the actual trouble you are having with the code you have posted?

If I'm understanding your request properly, at a minimum, you would need to also specify which pages are hidden.  Also, it looks like you would probably want your sql statement to look up the role of a particular user and then set the tabs visible or hidden ONCE, after the role has been looked up.  Your code currently has the tab visibility code inside your recordset loop.  That doesn't seem quite right.

I think you need something more like this:

dim pg as page
for each pg in me.tabmain.pages
        pg.visible = false    ' start out with all pages hidden
next

' look up the user's role
Set rstRoles = db.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
        if rstRoles.recordcount = 0 then
                msgbox "no role found for this user"
                Exit sub ' (or function)
        end if
                    Select Case rstRoles.Fields("roleName")
                    Case "Processor"
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(3).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(4).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(5).Visible = True
                    Case "Security Administrator"
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(1).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(4).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(5).Visible = True
                    Case "System Administrator"
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(0).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(4).Visible = True
                        Me.TabMain.Pages(5).Visible = True
                    End Select
     Set rstRoles = Nothing
    Set db = Nothing

The idea behind what I just posted is that the person using the database has a given 'role'.  Based on that role, you are only allowing them to see certain pages.

Is that understanding correct?

See my comments above - that syntax fixed it.  Thanks for your help
