    • Continue and extend backend functionality from AWA in Access Desktop

      Given the fact a decision on AWA has been taken, here's I think what the development team should do. 1. Make AWA datamacros available in Access Desktop 2. Extend with support of Update/Create/Delete Queries in the query designer. 3. Explode functionality by making datamacros that return just one value available as functions within expression builders of queries and datamaros 4. Support the database qualifier in front of tablenames the way it is already available in SQL-Server between databases. this way users can integrate AWA managed and non-AWA managed very easily. (integration with CLR SQL-server projects and other tools that generate…

      • Give us a new dll - MSJSON.dll

        Currently to work with XML objects from API calls we have an object model from referencing MSXML6.dll that make iterating through the response easy. With JSON we can only get strings of data that we have interpret. If you created MSJSON.dll for us we could manipulate JSON data as easily as XML and make life easier for developers dealing with API calls.

          • Please bring back Dynamic Charts and Pivot Tables

            Hello, some of the features that have been dropped on Access from the 2013 version is a frustrating fact.
            Specifically, I'm talking about the PivotTables and PivotCharts.
            I developped for my company two applications that manage the commercial activity and another for the management of operational risks.
            This feature (PivotTables and PivotCharts) had been very useful for reporting in the 2007 and 2010 versions.
            Now this feature is no longer supported and our IT Department has migrated the Office to the 2016 version, I am really stuck.
            Please take into consideration this request and consider the possibility of its reactivation.

              • Add auto-complete to fields based on existing data

                WHen entering a new record (or editing an existing record), why not allow the user to turn on an auto-complete, which would compare the characters typed with existing data entered for that field in other records?

                It would be useful and reduce mistakes in databases which use a limited number of values for specific fields (eg address databases)

                • Provide an option to turn off hyperlink warnings as they are unsightly and we know what we are linking to.

                  Remove the enable contents as it is a nuisance.
                  Default the form to centralize on the screen and pop up. It can be changed if required.
                  Have a default of zero on text fields as it seems to allow changes to occur without losing previous data.

                  • Expand the maximum Form width

                    Recently I got a new monitor with a resolution of 3440 x 1440. I wanted to create a Form that uses the entire Screen width. I failed because the Specifications only allows a width of 57,79 cm (which in this case corresponds to about 2200 pixels). This was completely sufficient for decades but with these screens nowadays…

                        • Error after duplicate in primary key

                          I think that if there is a duplicate in the Primary Key column then before you leave that box, it should let you know there is an error. Not error after you finish the entire row.

                            Many members drop off or do not renew membership. With an inactive report we can trace and follow up with inactive member.

                                I was testing the invoice printout and although I entered Payment Terms & Amount Paid, it did NOT printout. Is the Payment Terms field numerical? For tracking, I would prefer to enter as reference the check number unless you have another option.

                                  I have not found any posting regarding an issue I see with moving controls within the Report Footer section of a report. This report does have a lot of controls in it (invoice), but I have noticed that in Design mode, when moving controls, the control ends up at the top of the Report Footer section when attempting to click & drag it. ....Why is this ? Does anyone else see this problem ?? ....... Thank you for any suggestions....David

                                      • Interpolation/zoom for drawings

                                        I would like Interpolation for drawings as a regular part of MS Access to show for e.g. sparte parts in a Picture box on a form, to zoom and to move left, right, up down.

                                          Some actions require for a sheet to be closed. While I see the logic for this it would be easier if when the mouse hovered over the tab a button to close the tab would pop-up. This would be much faster than left-clicking the tab and then selecting close
