Tab interface layering issue?

Hello,

I copied a tab interface from a DB and pasted it into my layout. Each tab has a label, and both the label and tab are set to "Go to layout(LabelName)". Most of them work properly, but 2 or 3 of the buttons do not perform. They just blink as if they're "Do Nothing" scripts - but when I DC on a faulty one, it shows the proper link to "Go to" the correct layout.

I tried selecting them as a group, arranging them to Front and then back, but I can't figure out what the problem is.

Finally, I copied the tabs/labels and pasted them into a new DB - and they work fine - which leads me to believe it may be a layering issue - or maybe an "order of creation" issue.

I put up the successful DB at http://homepage.mac.com/scott_myers if the above description is unclear.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

It is possible you have layered objects with different Button settings defined for each. Try ungrouping several times, then separate them and remove any button settings by double clicking each and setting them to Do Nothing.

Put things back together, Group them, and define your button.
