Customizing the Appearance of Tab Controls

    Hello,

    I've created a form which features several tab controls. I'm having trouble
    customizing the appearance of the tab controls. The 'properties' section
    only features customizable features for fonts - I'd like to be able to change
    the background color of the tab sheet itself. If I try to use the 'fill/back
    colour' button, the background color of the form is changed, but not the tab
    sheet.

    I'd appreciate any help anyone could offer...

    Have a great day!

    You have reached the limits of the customizability of the built-in Tab
    control. You can build your own as described in an article I wrote in Access
    Advisor magazine:
