HI all,
How can I keep the tabs of a form I have created visible at the top of the screen when I scroll down the form?

If this is a form with a Tab control, you could make subforms (one for each tab), and then you can scroll within the subforms and still see the tabs on the main form.

You using a tab control or buttons as tabs?  If the latter, move them into the form header area (footer is a nice place too).

The form has a tab control, and only one of the forms has a subform.  I can't get that subform to scroll up or down once I click in any of the controls, but that is another issue that I have posted.  I have long forms that need to be scrolled since I need to replicate an existing paper form.

I was hoping there is some easy attribute to set to keep the tabs locked at the top.

No.   The only way I know of doing that simulating it is with buttons and a list box or subforms.

 The tabs are part of the control and like any other, it resides in the detail section and will scroll with it.

Thanks,
I guess there is not way to get the tabs locked to the top of the screen and visible when scrolling down.

Datasheet subforms work fine for me, on a Tab control.  Did you try that approach?

It is a more complicated screen than just a datasheet subform I think.  Screen shot is attached.  If I click in any of the controls, the screen no longer scrolls with the scroll wheel unless I use the scroll bar on the right.
