Side Tabs on Navigation form - Access 2010

Side Tabs on Navigation form - Access 2010

How can the side tabs on the navigation form (Access 2010) be kept to a specific size. They change constantly when switching the top tabs.

Thank you,

RE: Side Tabs on Navigation form - Access 2010

"Side tabs"? I know when you normally add tab objects, they go across the top, not side. I've never seen one with the tabs on the side. Regardless, if that's possible, my first guess is that it's the length of the strings contained in the tab titles - so whatever is showing for the title/tab text. I'd first try resizing the tab title area to be a little larger by default if possible. Then I'd consider ways to abbreviate the text that shows up on the tabs. Another thing you can check is look for the property "can grow" and similar. Many objects in Access forms have this feature, and it's a Yes/No box in the object properties.
