I have a tabbed form which when opened has the 1st tab being the active tab and this is the way I want it to work.  But also on the form is a combobox that allows the user to navigate through the records.  So if for example the user has the 3rd tab active on the current record and moves to another record, we want the 3rd tab to be the active tab on the record also.  Can this be done?

Add something like this to the end of the code behind the combobox

'Assuming you have just requeried or navigated to another record
Me.TabControlName.Pages(3).SetFocus

This will RETURN the focus to the desired tab rather than keep it on the tab, so you may see some flicker.
