2.5. Display Multiple Pages of Information on One Form

Problem

You have a large number of fields that you need to display on a form. If you place them all on the form at once, it looks too complicated. You need some way to group them by category and display only the ones that correspond to each category as the user works through all the groups.

Solution

Access 97 introduced the native Tab control, which is useful for organizing information into multiple pages. Simply organize your fields into categories, creating one page on the Tab control for each category.

Load 02-05.MDB and open frmMain. This sample form (shown in Figure 2-8) contains a Tab control. By clicking on a tab, you cause one of the four possible pages of the form to be displayed in the Tab control section.
