Document tab colors

yballan used Ask the Experts™
Dear Experts,

I am creating a database, where I would like to have tabbed documents to display several forms.  It all works fine, but I would like to change the color of the document tabs and the icons that displays there.  I do not want to create tab controls within the form, I just want to change the tab's looks on top.
Is there any way to do this?
Please advise, thank you.

You should wait for other comments, but I don't believe it is possible to change the colour of the document tab.

No way I'm aware of to do that other then through options/themes and you only have 3 choices and the theme affect the entire look of Access, not just the tabs.

Hi, Jim,

I want to try your suggestion, but cannot find options/themes in my Access 2007.
Where should I look?


thank you, I figured it out, I did it from Word.
Still not what I was looking for, but I guess it cannot be done.
Thank you to both of you.
