Default Chapter 10 - Beginning VB6 database programming

I have nearly completed setting up the contact database outlined in chapter 10 of above book. However my SSTab is not displaying properly. The fields on the first tab are showing through onto the other two tabs. Can you please tell me how I can correct this. I have looked through the chapter carefully and I have followed the instructions carefully. Am I missing something?

Regard

It sounds like your fields are contained by the form not the tab - this can happen if, for example, you originally drew the controls on the form and then dragged them onto the tab. Try this:
1. select the fields that are "showing through"
2. right-click and choose 'Cut' from the pop-up menu
3. select the Tab control, ensuring the first tab has the focus
4. right-click and choose 'Paste', the fields should appear in the top-left of the tab control
5. click one of the other tabs and make sure the fields no longer show through.
