Using fields as the names for tabs?

Hi there,

I'm building a task management database, and have hit a problem with using tabs on the layout.

What I want is to have seven tabs, showing the upcoming seven days, letting the user flick between them and see what tasks lie ahead for them. I'd like to have the names of the days on the tabs themselves, but this needs to change dynamically. So on Monday the first tab says Tuesday, next one says Wednesday. On Thursday the first tab would say Friday, second Saturday etc.

The problem is that using Filemaker 8s built in tabs layout tool thingy, it seems that the tabs can only have basic text names. Is there any way around this?

The only way I can think of getting round the problem is to have a discrete layout for each day of the week (e.g. if it's Monday, go to the Monday layout, which has tabs starting on Tuesday) but this looks like a lot of work and duplication for something that I thought would be pretty simple.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

Stuart
