Linked controls across multiple pages

Hi -

I have a MS Database.  There is a form with multiple pages (tabs), each page with controls.  When I copy a control to a new or existing page from another page, it appears that they are linked to the original page.  If I change the name of the control in one page, trying to unlink them across pages, the name also changes in the other pages.  Any ideas how I can unlink?

Thanks,

It sounds like you aren't quite copying the controls into a specific tab control page, but rather on top of the tab control as a whole... which would mean that you only have one textbox (or whatever), not one per page.

Try this.

-  Ctrl-C the control you want to copy
- Click the tab over the page that you want to copy the control to.  The border around the page should be outlined if you do this right - not the border around the whole tab control
- ctrl-V to paste the control onto the new tab page.
