In Access 2010, I am creating a tab form based off of one table. However, I am unable to split the fields across tabs. That is - the fields appear on all tabs, and when I delete from one tab, it is deleted from all.

I want to have fields 1 - 10 on tab 1. 11 - 20 on tab 2, etc.

Please advise.

Thank you.

>That is - the fields appear on all tabs,
When you add a control (subform, textbox, whatever) to a tab control, you have to make sure that the tab you want is selected, then move the control.

Otherwise, the control ends up visible on all tabs.

ok ... here is the drill.

1) drag a control (text box, label, etc.) onto the form somewhere - anywhere.
2) Control X it off the form and into the clipboard
3) From the controls drop down list on the tool bar in the upper left hand corner of Access window, select the *Page* number on the tab that you want do add the control.  You will see a that page on the tab control become selected.
4) Now, hover your mouse over the selected area of that page ... don't click yet ... until you see the mouse pointer turn to a Hand.  
5) keep the mouse in that position, then right click and select Paste.

Your control will now be on the correct page ... and only that page.
