This is the help page for the Tab Control add-in.  Below are two videos that explain how Tab Control works.

I am working on additional videos that will help explain how to use Tab Control.  I will let you know when the videos are available.

Please leave a comment below with any questions.

If I set up tab controls like q1/q2 etc and then share it with someone who does not have Tab Control, what will they see and how would the page operate?

Sorry to ask such a basic tech question, but any ideas why Tab Control might not be opening for me? Tab Hound does work, and I see the Tab Control ribbon so it’s installed. I’ve tried everything — uninstalling/reinstalling, checking the add-ins menu, etc. I’m fairly technical. I’m on Office 365 so the latest, with Windows 10, 64-bit. Again, sorry for the annoying question!

On the video called tab control and tab hound you make mention to the previous video. I cannot find that one. Where is it located.

Tab control was very helpful setting up my monthly reports from my templates. Is there a way in Excel to clear just input cells in a worksheet?
Thank you for all your hard work.

    Hi Suzy, Great question. There are a few ways to do that. It will depend on what defines your input cells. Are they formatted a certain way?

      SUSAN CASTRO - August 14, 2015

      The fields are usually formatted numeric with 1 decimal place.

Jon –

Tab Control Problem:
I used it to create a Tab Control page.
Then I added two tabs, one by copying and renaming using Tab Hound, the other by inserting a Pivot Table.

The Tab Control page stayed the same and does not show the 2 new sheets, even after I clicked the “Run Updates” icon.

    I have the same question. Jon, can you please direct me to the answer?

      Jon Acampora - December 1, 2016

      Hi Dave,
      Sorry, I didn’t see Dan’s question. If new sheets are added then you need to press the Tab Control button and re-create the Tab Control sheet. The Run Updates button will only run the updates you have made on the existing Tab Control sheet. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
