I have a tab control on a form that contains about 8 tabs.  When i click from tab to tab there are times when the tab will load in the middle of the page and you can't see the top.  I would like all tabs when activated to load properly which would be to justify the screen to the far left and the top.  Is there a command to load these screens correctly?

I normally see this behavior when the form/tab control is to large for the screen size. Access is trying to reposition the control witht he foxusa to be visible. You will probably need to make the Tab control shorter.

What's on the tab controls? That is, do you have a set of Textboxes, Combos etc on the tab, or are you using a Subform on the tab?

Also, have you manually top / left justified the position of controls on each tab?

Thank you all.  After playing around with the forms I just made the controls tighter and shrunk the screen down.
