Thanks for the assistance Mike... This works great if I'm trying to access the control itself, but in this case I'm trying to get to the objects embeded in the control.

For example: I have a tabbed control with 7 tabs and each tab has a set of labels, buttons, and textboxes. This method allows me to access the properties of the tabbed control but I'm trying to find out how to access the textboxes on each tab.

Thanks again,
Andrew
