    Hey ya'll,
    I have 5 tabs of subforms in Access 2010
    Only the first tab is visable.
    I only want the rest of the tabs visable if associated checked boxes on first tab are checked.
    For example, the check boxes on first tab are:
    - Registrant is going to volunteer
    - Registrant is a veteran
    If those boxes are checked then the associated tab (volunteer info tab) is rendered visable.
    I assume this is going to need VB code on either the tabs event, or the first form event, or the check box?
    Thank you

    Yes you need to add some VBA code to the "After Update" event procedures of the Check boxes.
    It would be something like
    if me.checkboxname = -1 then
    me.tabname.visible = true
    me.tabname.visible = false
    end if
    where checkboxname is the actual name of your checkbox and tabname is the name of the tab to be made visible.
    The VBA editor should offer you the correct names of the controls on the Form.
