Tab panels-adding to an existing layout.


Hello, again...questions about tab panels in FM PRO 12

I would like to add, or change a layout to a layout that has a tab.  Then I could add multiple tabs to separate the information.

I was in the sample tutorial and had no problem creating a tab panel.  What I noticed was in the sample DB (Favorite Bakery Discount Program) the layout 'Data Enty' was already a tab panel, as opposed to the other layouts that were not.  So it was easy to create/add a new Tab Panel.

So my question is, how do I take a layout that isnt a tab panel, and either change it to one, or add a tab panel to it.  When I try to add a Tab Panel to it, just an empty box appears on the layout, which really doesnt let me do anything with it.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
