  1. Fix this 64-bit VBA compiler bug (temporary objects in IF clauses)

    I found a serious bug in VBA 64-bit which basically stops our porting efforts and our customers migration to Office 64-bit. Steps to reproduce:

    In a 64-bit VBA host (Access, Excel) add these files:

    SomeClass.cls:

    ' (Class_Terminate is required to reproduce the bug)
    
    Private Sub Class_Terminate()
    End Sub

    Main.bas:

    Function ReturnFalse(o As Object) As Boolean
    
    ReturnFalse = False
    End Function

    Sub test()
    Debug.Print ReturnFalse(New SomeClass)
    If ReturnFalse(New SomeClass) Then
    Debug.Print True
    Else
    Debug.Print False
    End If
    End Sub

    Running 'test' in the VBA IDE returns the following output in 64-bit Access:

    False
    
    True

    On a 32-Bit Access this yields:

    False

  2. Support Importing AIP Protected Excel/TXT files into Microsoft Access

    AIP protected Excel document and the protected extension of txt file (.pTXT) are not importable to Microsoft Access application

    Impact:

     - User not able to import/Process protected files into MS Access desktop application
    
    - MS Access macros not able to get data from protected files

    Not protecting the company’s confidential files with Azure information protection to let the users import files to MS Access is risking data exposure and unauthorized usage.

  3. Access for Mac!!

    I'm currently taking college classes while I'm in high school, and my parents got me a laptop so I could do my work on it. The problem is that I need Access to do some of my work. I don't understand how I can have Excel and Word but not Access. I would really appreciate it if y'all could make Access on Mac. Its 2020 people and I'm at home in quarantine (can't go to school and use their computers) and I need to get my work done.

  4. Sort the image gallery by name not ID

    There was a recent discussion at a virtual user group meeting on how to export all images in the gallery, then re-import them ordered by name. Seems like a lot of to do that every time you add an image.

    It would be a lot easier if Access just sorted by name not the ID.

  7. Improved command line access

    Could we have command line flags which:
    \noautoexec - prevents any macro running on start-up
    \table <tablename> opens on a specific table
    \form <formname> - opens on a specific form
    \report <reportname> opens on a specific report
    The last three, obviously, being alternatives.

  8. Add an additional GetOption/SetOption option to set the Startup Form

    Sometimes we want to programmatically set the startup form and that is currently not possible.
    Please add GetOption("Display Form") and SetOption("Display form").
    I would use this feature in my "To Convention" code that fixes up bad naming convention.

  9. Incorporar la tecnología de Project Nucleus a las listas vinculadas

    Con Project Nucleus las listas se sincronizarían con una BD local con lo se podría trabajar sin conexión y se eliminarían los problemas de las listas demasiado largas. Si esto funcionara también con las listas vinculadas, Sharepoint se convertiría en un estupendo back-end para Access.

  10. Fix System Resource Exceeded error with large files

    Ever since we upgraded to the latest Windows 10 version and MS 2019 version, our previously working update queries for ~100,000 records are failing and throwing the System Resource Exceeded error! This is unacceptable.

    The issue is reproducible on multiple computers with the latest upgrade and working on the non-upgraded computers. Many users are suffering from this issue as you can see here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/access/system-resources-exceeded-error/m-p/1791077

  14. Dirt Bike Snow Tires in 2021

    Winters are difficult for extreme riders since they are limited in their outdoor exposure and forced to stay at home. With special winter tires, we can ride the bike like a champion through slippery conditions. We've listed the top 7 dirt bike snow tire models with all of the necessary attributes.

    It can be difficult to find the correct snow tire. It's much more challenging for new riders because there are so many minor aspects about tires that customers must be aware of before purchasing a product. We reviewed the top 7 snow tires with 4 at https://dirtbikeadvisor.com/best-dirt-bike-snow-tire/ and more…

  16. Integrate Access With Version Control Systems Like Git(Hub) and Azure DevOps

    Integrating Access with version control systems, enables multiple developers to work simultaneously on the same application/database. This would would highly improve the development cycle for present Access development teams. And it would also make Access a very interesting Rapid Application Development-tool for other development teams.

  17. Allow a Developer to Format their Code with Tab & Space

    I have selected the Forms category but this applies equally to Functions, Modules as well as Subs. I did create examples of this but it does not format correctly in this little window.
    When you write code you cannot use the Tab or space to align code to make it easier to read. As an instance, if you are declaring variables, they will often have names of different lengths, there is then the '=' followed by the value to assign. You cannot set the '=' on each line to the same vertical position. What you end up with is a…

    Allow GetObject to be disabled for a specific PC. This would plug a security hole that currently allows a 2nd access program to bypass security in running access program and change data and would prevent the second PC from running any sql statements they wish. Reference the Anders Ebro video in this list for November 2020

  20. Create a connector for SharePoint

    Hi,

    In the menu External Data > New Data Source, there is no way to connect to an Excel file stored in a SharePoint folder.

    That's a problem because more and more companies use SharePoint and all the Excel in the SharePoint are "invisible" for Access
