Accecss 2010 - new Navigation Control

I am the new 2010 navigation control as my main form navigation.  It works really well.  I have provided the functionality for the user to open and close various backend databases.  If the user 'closes' all the backend databases I want to disable all of the tabs that show data and default to the form that prompts the user to choose a backend.  

I can enable/disable navigation tabs by setting me.navClientView.Enabled=False, for example.

How do I simulate the user clicking on the tab I want to show?

(Using the old tab control, I could have coded something like:
tabMain=2
call tabMain_Change  

Open in new window

where 2 was the tab I wanted to switch to.
But the new navigation control doesn't work that way.

Each tab button has a name in the new control, and I want to switch to navSettings.  So, something like:
call navSettings_Click

Open in new window

but there is no code - it is now all done with the Navigation Target Name property.

I've solved it.

I needed to use the browseTo command:

DoCmd.BrowseTo acBrowseToForm, "frmSettings", "frmNavigation.NavigationSubform"
