    • 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.

        • Designing Reports - make it easier to draw a horizontal line

          When designing reports and you select the horizontal line tool it is very hard to draw a long straight line. You end with with a jagged line or the report and orange lines on the screen. It is very time consuming to get it just right - you need to have the skills of a brain surgeon.
          Could you please make it a quick - one drag feature.

              • 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…

                • 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.

                        Sugiero que se cree la posibilidad de compilar el access y hacer un fichero ejecutable encriptado sin posibilidades de acceso a su diseño interior.

                        • Deliberately making products like Access cause eyestrain? How about change light blue-and-white, light grey-and-white to BLACK AND WHITE !!

                          Did you deliberately make products like Access and Excel in such a way to cause eyestrain? Try the spell check in Word 2016 !!! How about changing light blue-and-white, very light grey-and-white to BLACK AND WHITE ??? In our office we're convinced that MS has a big department only devoted to making users suffer as much as possible in many ways.

                          • Make it easier to select edges of controls/boxes for re-sizing

                            When selecting window edges such as in Form Design, Report Design, Query Design it is very, very difficult to grab the edge.

                            • Allow users to set the font size in textboxes using Conditional Formatting.

                              I have infographics in my Access application that could use this feature to size text on forms based on the value of a field(s). For example, if the text in a field is "Superior" I would like the font size to be 30 points rather than the standard 11 points. Thanks.

                                  If you have a table with a lot of columns sometimes it would be helpfull to show a single record vertically instead of horizontally, so you see more data of the single record at the same time.

                                  • Enable seamless integration with Excel objects

                                    In light of the items requesting return of Pivot*** objects (https://access.uservoice.com/forums/319956-access-desktop-application/suggestions/10284183-add-pivot-charts-back-to-access) being rejected, I want to suggest an alternative that I hope is much simpler to implement and would bring better experience:

                                    Ability to seamlessly embed Excel objects, be they tables, charts, pivotcharts, pivottables, directly inside Access.

                                    This already exists but it is very awkward, outdated, and includes unwanted things (e.g. Excel's chrome, the spreadsheet itself and so forth). This solution should allow us to define an Excel object using Access data and show it as if it was just a normal Access control. It should allow us…

                                    • Liks to Sage Accounts and Quickbooks

                                      As the new version of Access will allow linking to other databases could the team include Sage Accounting System and Quickbooks. There are many potential add-ons that could and need to be developed to improve both of these accounting packages and interfacing to Access is painful and expensive. This would ensure Access remains the 'go-to' application for all small database analysis.

                                      • ability to have the labels printed with solution

                                        Have the ability to have the labels printed with solution
                                        eg Magnesium nitrate solution as 0.1M solution
                                        and at present we can only get a label with Magnesium nitrate 6 hydrate.
