(Q)     How do I refer to a control found on a tab page when I'm using a tabbed form?

(A)     The tab control has no impact on the syntax for referring to a control. To refer to a control on the main form, you simply use [Control name].

To refer to a property of a subform on a tab page, you use:

[Subform Control Name].Form.Property

To refer to a control on a subform on a tab page:

[Subform Control Name].Form![Control Name]

And, to refer to a property of a control on a subform on a tab page:

[Subform Control Name].Form![Control Name].Property
