Storing Control properties in a table

Hi all.

I am using one form to create new records as well as view existing records for review/editing.

I have all the controls disabled by default, and only enabled based on New Record, who is viewing the existing record, what the status of the record is and what department the users are in.

What I am trying to do is loop through each control to enable them based on these various criteria.

I have tried using multiple tags, such as 1, 2, 3, 4 so that I can loop through looking for a value of 1 or 2, etc., but if there are multiple tags, the control is skipped in the loop.

Then, I found this page: http://
in which one user suggests using a table to store control property data, but does not say exactly how.

Suggestions on how to get this to work?
