    on a Form, is there a way to have Tabs contained inside of a Section headings? so that the lower Sections are still visible when you change tabs?

    Currently when ever I create a Tab, everything below it is contained in that tab until I add a another Tab.

    How do I add a Section that is outside of a tab that is above it?

    I would like to have Different Sections that contained their won tabs. Is this possible?

    Based on the documentation I've read Tabs can have Sections, but Sections cannot have Tabs.

    Tabs are in essence the 'parent' container. 

    There may be non-native ways of achieving what you are looking for. You may have come across this older post before tabs were released: https://community.quickbase.com/quickbase/topics/how-to-create-tabs-in-a-form-for-better-navigation

    Thanks Sharon,
     I will into thins and see if I can do a redesign where this is not needed.  Else look at the possibility of implementing the older Solution.
