I have never managed this. I will be interested if you can. I believe it is fixed to black.
Sorry I can't help there, but we hopefully will both learn.

Not with the standard Access Tab Control. You can if you use this.

Thanks for answering my question. I guess it can't be done as is.

Hi
I'm sure you can't.. the last attempt I did was to set the tab control with no tabs and used command buttons to emulate the tab's. And then I was able to add some custom features(icons/text/etc..).

I have the simillar problem, but I don't want to bother with all that work, does anyone know the RGB values for that stadard tab control cream color? Then I can just change the background color of the form.

nevermind I got it, 14215660 is that cream color. tab controls use the windows default color for 3-D objects. You can change this or find out what it is in the Diplay Properties -> Appearance tab -> Advanced options.
