Tabbed controls have proven effective for managing and moving between multiple screens on a form. Access takes tabbed controls that one step farther and displays all open objects in tabbed windows. You can see everything that is open, and just click the tab that you want in full view. No resizing, moving, or minimizing is needed to find another object.
The tabbed windows keep objects in viewable areas, offer users the convenience of knowing what is open, and make it easy for the user to move among the open objects. But, what about those who want to see multiple forms or reports at the same time? Thankfully, it is easy to return to your comfort zone through the Access Options dialog box. Open the Access Options dialog box and choose Current Database O Document Window Options O Overlapping Windows. Voilà, you can now view and position multiple objects.
