The Insert tab of the Ribbon is only visible when you are working in the Form or the Report designers. This tab offers you a list of controls that can be inserted into the document you are editing.

The controls which are available when designing Forms and Reports are not the same, due to the difference in nature between these two document types. The controls which do have counterparts are as similar to each other as possible.
