    Default Tabbed Sub-forms AlphaFour; Ver. 7

    I set up a form with two sub-forms. After entering data from a source, i realized that I needed to reconfigure database and add some more fields. Therefore, I want to add a third or even a fourth sub-form. Can I add sub-forms once I have the basic form setup? If so, please give me the instructions.
    Thanks.

    Yes you can.

    Edit your form, then press F9 and draw your subform, press enter.

    I did as you suggested. Went to the form. Edit...F(...and the only choice was to re-size. Nothing about sizing a new form. Any suggestions as to what I am missing???????

    Hi Ron

    Why so many subforms? Don't you have room for more tabs on your current subform? Or do you mean more tabs when you say add another subform.

    Hi Ron

    1) In edit mode make sure your subform is selected:

    2) Press {F9} Subform

    3) Select "Subform Parameters"

    4) Scroll down to "Tab Labels"

    5) Press {F2} Edit tabs

    6) The "Tabs" window appears and on the right hand side is a highlighted blank line. Using the {Down} arrow on your key board scroll down to where you want to insert a tab.

    7) Press {F} Insert

    8) Select "Before" or "After"

    9) Enter your new tab name and you are done.

    A quirk of the "Tabs" window is that you move the blank line on the right side of the screen to perform the operations "Insert" - "Delete" - "Move".

    Hope this helps.

    Robert
