This dialog lets you edit the properties of a tabbed-table. A tabbed table is a Genstat table displayed in a spreadsheet over multiple pages and is created with the Create Tabbed Table menu. The pages are indexed by one of the classifying factors of the table. The name of the table and the factors of the factor indexing the tabs can be modified with this dialog.

The following example shows a tabbed-table of rainfall by year, month and day, where the years are displayed across the pages in the spreadsheet.

The classifying factor used across the tabs can be changed using the Reorder Spreadsheet Table margins menu.
