I have a data entry form with a tab control with a number of pages. On load my form populates a number of the text boxes. The problem is populating text boxes which are on the non-active tab page. Only the text boxes on the front page can be populated. For instance "EmailAddressTextBox.Text = .Item("EmailAddress")" only works if the EmailAddressTextBox.Text is on the first tab on on the main form itself.
