Hi I am trying to use the feature of "tabs" in a table. But, I would like to repeat a field or two in each of the tab. Is that possible? In other words, can we repeat a field in several places in a form?

I'm pretty sure that you will not be able to duplicate a data entry field twice on a form.  if you need a mirror field, you can make a formula to duplicate a field for viewing in another tab.

I have heard that they plan to enhance tabs so that there can be a common header section across all tabs.

Thank you. I will check the forum to see whether there is help on mirror fields between tabs. Thank you.

But, it does make sense for them enhance this function. 
by a mirror field i just meant a field like

[Customer name mirror] with a formula of 

[Customer name]
