  1. Add PowerQuery to ACCESS

    PowerQuery is the best improvement for collecting data for Excel since many years. I would love to use it in Access too, without using Excel.
    I would like to extract data from SAP, WEB, CSV-Files, collect all files from a folder, de-pivot files... Any ETL job PowerQuery supplies für Excel, but directly in Access!

    • Forms view not scrolling

      With the last version update of Access, the forms no longer scroll. The wheel on the mouse doesnt scroll anymore. The scroll bar also doesnt work when you drag it up or down. Is there a timeline for a fix on this bug? If no known timeline, I will have to downgrade my version of Access to fix the problem.

            • Fix bug: Date Picker Not Available if Unbound Textbox has Input Mask

              Steps to reproduce:
              1. Add a Textbox control to a form.
              2. Set the Format property to Short Date.
              3. Set the Show Date Picker property to "For dates"

              At this point, the field will display a date picker.
              Now:
              4. Use the Input Mask wizard to set a short date input mask, or simply place this value in the input mask field:
              99/99/0000;0;_

              Result: Date Picker no longer works.

                • Avoid randomly hang when running PowerPoint and Word concurrently

                  The version of office that I using now is Office Professional Plus 2016 provided by my university. There are two main problems that I hope can be solved.
                  1. I cannot find the "Feedback" button which should appear between "Account" and "Options".
                  2. When running PowerPoint and Word concurrently, one of them will randomly hang (闪退). Most time is PowerPoint. In about 40 minutes, PowerPoint hang about 4 times and Word hang 1 time.

                    • Make your video training playable

                      I am trying to access the training videos for Access at the link below but I can only get the first video to play. Videos 2, 3, 4, and 5 won't play. I chatted with a Microsoft representative and she saw the same issue and directed me to this board. I tried using Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Firefox but none of them would play the other videos.

                        • With Runtime - simplify and automate Ribbon from development to runtime

                          I'm novice programmer. I don't familiar with XML programming.
                          Why not just to create Ribbons and Controls at full-version, select with simple checkbox and associate it to specific form (at forms properties) or to enable it globally to all forms and reports.
                          Access runtime will automatically apply the selected Ribbons the selected forms/reports.
                          Many thanks,
                          Arik

                                    • Allow navigation style forms/subforms to close without save prompt

                                      At present if using the navigation style for forms in Access, if you allow the user to make simple changes to the form/subform, then Access may see this as a design change to the form and prompt the user to save those design changes when the user navigates away from the form.

                                      Usually these types of changes are not save-worthy, things like sorting and filtering (I filter by replacing the recordsource and sorts change labels to indicate what is sorted and which way).

                                      However as a developer I have virtually no mechanism to stop these undesirable prompts since the user…

                                      • Remove auto-filters from Datasheet without disabling Shortcut Menu

                                        Currently the only way to remove the drop-down auto-filters from the datasheet view is to disable the short cut menu. Don't really understand why the one is tied to the other, but I had to remove the whole shortcut menu functionality from my application because when this new distracting and absolutely unhelpful feature was introduced.

                                          If creating a new empty accdb (acc 2013 32 bit) and you say "import all" and you have a form (in the old accdb) which contains an (older) IE-Control (part from Internet explorer) Then the form cannot copied over to a new database, but that form corrupts. Old bug, but extremely ennoying, as you cannot be sure that the created database is OK. Especially when you have 100+ Forms in it ...
