Access 2010 - and Tabs


C

Commish

I like having my tables, queries, forms, etc opening in the tabbed
view.

For my job, I am frequently using many databases, and having to set
the default to show tabs is a pain.

Is there a way to jailbreak Access to let me set tabs as the default?

I'm confused. The default IS tabs: most people are looking for how to make
the default the older Overlapping Windows approach.

Well, that's not the case in my situation. I have Access on 3
computers - all of them have the radio button for "Overlapping
Windows" selected when I open any file. I need to select the "Tabbed
Documents" radio button and then close and re-open the file to use
tabs. I am accessing these options from the "Access Options" and the
"Current Database" windows.

Is it possible that because I am frequently working with older
documents that they bering their own set of defaults?

Are these MDB files that you're opening in Access 2010?

As a matter of fact, they are MDB files from the previous versions of
Access.

"Default" only applies when you're creating the databases. Once they've been
created, the interface is set. Since you created them in a previous version
of Access that did not have the Tab view option, you're getting the non-tab
interface. Afraid there's no option but to set it back yourself.
