I have a form with tab controls and I have Multi Row = Yes.  But I cannot get the tabs to appear in two rows.  What am I doing wrong?

It will only display in two rows if the number of tabs will not fit on a single row.

Can you take a screen shot of the form in design view and post it here?

Dale,

Attached.  As you can see I have blanked out the text on the tabs due to confidentiality issues.  I need the form to only be 11" wide which means it should cut off after the 7th tab (with 3 tabs on the 2nd row.  Make sense?

Strange.  I tried it earlier and it didn't work.  Tried it again and it did!  ????

STeve,

Then you need to size the tab control to something less than 11" wide.  Once you have done that, the tabs will show up in multiple rows and you will also be able to resize the form to be only 11" wide.
