    I have a form consisting of more than one table and it is set up to resemble
    index cards so that you can click on a tab to move between the categories of
    data to enter. The initial tab is used to find the record you want and then
    you click on the appropriate tab to go to that data to enter. The problem is
    that when I select the main record in the first tab, if I go over to another
    tab the arrows to advance records are still visible at the bottom of the form
    and you can advance to another record from any of the tabs. Is there a way
    so that the only way to advance to another record and its data is from the
    first tab(index card) view? Can I pick the record that I need and when I go
    to another tab(index card) the arrows disappear or are disabled?

    Thanks,
    RM

    Have each tab consist of its own subform.

    Not enough info for us to know your set-up ...

    A Form is bound to only one RecordSource which can combine multiple Tables
    in some way related. However, your description indicates otherwise.

    Describe in details of the relevant Tables, the RecordSource of the Form,
    how your TabControl is set up (Subforms in TabPages?) ...
