Good Day Experts!

I have searched online but I am not quite sure how to go about this new task.  My application is centered around a Form that has a tabControl on it.  Currently there are 19 tabs on it.  The 20th Tab I added is the one causing the trouble.  I want to hide it for all but 3 Users.  So, in the Form_Load I am checking for Username but I cannot seem to get the syntax down for how to hide the tab.  Also, I am not sure what is going to happen when I have to add a tab for all Users to see right after the one I am hiding based on User.

What do you think?

Thanks,

I usually check for proper user on enter and go to another tab if that user isn't allowed.  Something like;
If User not allowed then
     TabControl1.SelectedTab = TabPage7    ' some other tab page
end if

I may be wrong, but I don't think you can hide a tab.
