Default Multiple controls - grouped

Hi - I'm wondering if anyone knows of a way to group a bunch of controls which are (at the moment) contained within a frame. What I have is a form which has different controls placed in 3 separate frames. What I'd like to do is have some way of enabling and disabling all the controls (in one go)in whatever frame depending on the user who accesses the form. I've done this before coding C++ using a panel but I can't seem to find any components available with this functionality in access.

Can anybody help me out or is it simply many enable/disable calls in my code?

An easy way to do this is put tags on them in their TAG property, e.g. Group1, Group2, etc.

Then you can cycle enable/disable them in one shot.

Dim ctlMyControl as Control

For Each ctlMyControl in Me
   If ctlMyControl.Tag = "Group1" Then
      ctlMyControl.Enable = True
   End IF
Next ctlMyControl
