  3. Fix the issue of Access returning an incorrect record ID when a bound form is connected to a SQL Server table that has an insert trigger

    Access returns an incorrect record ID when a form is bound to an SQL Server table that has an 'insert trigger' that inserts a record into 'another' table. The record ID returned is actually the record ID of the trigger inserted record into the 'other' table. This is because Access calls SQL Server for @@IDENTITY rather than SCOPE_IDENTITY() when inserting a new record. This particularly affects SQL Server tables that are 'replicated' as these tables have an MS shipped 'insert trigger' on the table for use in replication. We have an MS Support Case # 23043471 where we have had…

  4. Fix a Bug! Filtering problem on persian Ye on linked tables

    Seems to be a Bug!
    Filtering on a filed containing ی (persian ye = unicode 1740) finds ي (arabic ye =1610) on linked tables; while searching and sorting are correct. this bug does not appear on local tables, just on linked tables.

    Test environment:

  7. New Linked Table Manager - quick fix for Escape key

    In the new Linked Table Manager, when I click the Relink/Add/Delete/Edit button a dialog is shown. If I press the Escape key, I expect that dialog to close, which it does, but the Linked Table Manager also closes. This behavior is annoying.

    Please change these dialogs so pressing Escape only closes the top window.

  8. ONE DRIVE - Survey Creation and Data Collection

    As One Drive is Cloud based, I'd like questionnaire templates that I can then customize for my interests / requirements using either MS Excel or MS Access. Then once created, I'd like to be able to 1) Invite Specific Respondents to fill in the questionnaire via a link; and 2) Post the Survey on a separate website with the data being saved in my specified One Drive Folder. It would be great if the templates or template forms came with easy-to-use or paste items for building the questionnaire such as contact info, date formats, text formats number formats, logic formats,…

  9. BUG - Linked Table Manager removes tables from custom groups in Navigation Pane

    Case: user creates custom views in Navigation Pane and puts tables to custom groups for navigation convenience. If such table is a linked table, any relink with Link Table Manager now removes the table from custom group, putting it into a single heap of "Unassigned Objects". This makes navigation a pain. This was not a default behavior several updates ago. All tables stayed in their places. Please fix this bug.

  10. Fix new Settings Incompatibility Bug

    I believe I have hit a new bug in ACCESS.
    This conflict shows up when a front end using standard Access SQL connects to a Back-end using SQL Server Syntax (ANSI92).
    It results in very strange behavior with Combo-Boxes failing to Auto-Complete and Wildcard Queries not returning results.
    Access 2010 is immune! Phew.

    It is repeatable and can be reproduced by following the process:
    There appears to be a new bug in ACCESS 365 / Click to Run.
    It DOES NOT EXHIBIT on Access 2010, but I have not tested with 2013.

  14. add the data file/table name being imported on saved imports.

    I have some saved imports that pull in multiple tables from our ERP system. I believe it would be informative to know which "step" in the import is active by showing the table name on the status bar. Right now it shows "Importing. Press and hold ESC to stop." Expanding that to "Importing table xxxxxxxx - Press and hold ESC to stop."

  17. SQL Server - Linked Tables: Add discription to field names in development mode.

    In MS Access its easy to add descriptions to fields in table editor. These descriptions are neither taken over when using ssma nor are they brought back to Access when already existing in sql server.

    I've written a vba-script that creates an T_SQL script to create all field descriptions of a table. But even if descriptions exists they are not reshown in the linked table.
