Using OneNote On SharePoint - Why does it seperate out my OneNote tabs into separate files

I have been using OneNote to track information for a project I am working on. I have about 5 tabs in OneNote with pages for each tab.  I decided I needed to share this with others on the project so I placed it into a library on Share Point.

What I did not expect is that SharePoint separated each tab in OneNote into separate files and icons within the library I am using when I loaded One Note into SharePoint. I was expecting to just have a OneNote Icon in Sharepoint not unique files split out from OneNote within my SharePoint library.

Question: Is there any way to load OneNote as an icon which opens from my SharePoint  library instead of individual OneNote icons displayed in my Sharepoint library ?

I appreciate any assistance with this issue I am having.

One Note has one file per tab and I do not think you can change this. I have One Note 2010 and 2013 and I cannot have one file for all tabs.

John,
   Thanks for your comment. I do realize what you are saying . However, what I expected to see when OneNote was brought into SharePoint is  one icon from OneNote. What I got was each tab of OneNote  was a icon in SharePoint.

I wanted OneNote in SharePoint to have one icon to open it in SharPoint, not 5  icons, one for each tab.

Yes, I read your first post carefully. I don't think you can do that, however, because each One Note Tab is a file. I think SharePoint treats two Word documents as two things.
