  3. adding new features to Microsoft Access

    Introduction

    Microsoft Access is an application for database which a lot of companies, schools, colleges, and universities are using it in order to manage the information of their employees or students. Our project tending to make Microsoft Access easier to be used by its users by improving the security of the databases and the ease of entering the information into these databases.

  4. Add the LOGEST function (which is in Excel) to Access

    Excel has the function LOGEST that is used in regression analysis. The LOGEST function calculates an exponential curve that fits your data and returns an array of values that describes the curve.

    We use this function in our Excel models. I am attempting to rewrite some of these in Access but the LOGEST is not available in Access. It seems that all the functions available in Excel should also be available in Access.

  6. Modern Carting is far from modern

    Why is it not possible to have charting similar to what is in Excel?

    For those that want to dynamically display their data in an easily comprehended form Charts are the way to go, but Modern Charts in Access are so limited as to be almost useless. Linking to charts in Excel is complex and does not work well. If you are distributing your DB you must then distribute a copy of the Excel workbook.

  8. Where are you

    It has become obvious in reviewing this hub that Microsoft has no interest in feedback. Unless I am missing something, out of all the feedbacks provided, Microsoft has only tagged 3 for future consideration, and they are all dated years ago, and has followed thru on none.

    What is the point to this feedback channel?

  9. Que la rueda scroll del mouse sirva para desplazarse en la ventana de relaciones

    Actualmente la única forma para desplazarse en la ventana de relaciones es a través de las barras de desplazamiento. Resultaría muy útil poder hacerlo con la rueda del mouse

  11. [Editor] Adding the language column at keyword, ad and extension levels

    We can't see the language of keywords, ads or extensions from Editor as the column is not available at this level. The language is only displayed at the Campaign and Adgroup levels.

    For accounts with just one language it is not problematic, but when campaigns and adgroups have multiple languages we can't dispatch the data we export for keywords, ads and extensions.

    As NQS requires the data to be sent per market AND language, it is inconvenient when requesting for an editorial review.

    Could it be possible to add the hereditated language to keywords, ads and extensions in Editor? Langage…

  12. Changing theme in access 365 proplus

    It seems not possible to change the theme to black in Access 365 ProPlus. I have installed on another computer Access 365 Home and I can change it there. Further, all other ProPlus applications can be changed to Black. I have set the "UI" in registry editor to 4 which enables the colour options to increase to 4 - Colorful, Dark, Black, and White. only colorful and white are available in Access ProPlus, access home there are all 4 colours available

  13. inkonsistenten Zustand

    Access meldet, dass sich Datenbanken in einem "inkonsistenten Zustand"
    befinden

    Hallo Access Team,

    hier ein paar Informationen in der Hoffnung, dass diese helfen, da ich im Berufsalltag gerade viel Arbeit mit diesem Thema habe:

    Programm DB und Daten DB im Shard Netzlaufwerk (ich weiß, ist nicht ideal).
    Früher: Nur Windows 7 und Office 2010
    Aktuell: Windows 7 + Windows 10 + Office 2010 User

    Ich habe den Verdacht, dass User, die über ein Citrix Windows 10 (schlecht Netzverbindung) auf Programm und Daten zugreifen, das Problem verursachen könnten.

    Ich habe den Verdacht, dass bei starker Netzauslastung in der Firma das…

  15. Add case sensitivity to VBA to naming of procedures, variables and so on.

    If you want to follow naming conventions in VBA it's impossible to name a procedure for example "Foo" and a variable "foo".

    VBA automatically changes the casing of one of them.

    So please add case sensitivity to VBA to be able to properly name procedures, variables, types, declarations, events and so on.

  16. Access drop down tabs covers information

    When your in Access, when everything is compact; when you start clicking the top tabs ; Home, Create, External Data, Database Tools... etc. The half inch of drop down covers information. It'd be nice if the information drops down along with the bar.

  17. Add a transposed view option to query design - columns and rows swapped.

    The standard view is hard to use... being able to see all of my fields in query design at one time and the very few, rarely used; sort, criteria, table, etc options to one side would be much easier to use/maintain. Too much scrolling and resizing involved. We currently have 6 default row options in a Select query, but can only see 11 fields at the default size meaning any long field names or expressions are truncated or push related fields off the screen, that you need to see while editing the other.

  18. Give back the ability to add grid lines to modern charts

    Grid lines are a fundamental part of any non-pie chart. They allow for quick interpretation of the data. Please add the ability to add major and minor grid lines.

  19. Return the ability to add gridlines to modern charts.

    Given the number of people and organizations that use Access either standalone or as a frontend to an SQL Server database, I do not understand why MS would limit modern charts at such a basic level. I actually feel that you should spend some time and resources in improving modern charts.

  20. Introduce an option to get VBA code from the wizards instead of a macro.

    I hate when the wizards creates a macro instead of VBA code. Very often (95% of the time) I need to exchange the macro to code. Years ago the wizards created VBA code which was wonderful. Is it possible for you to consider to make it possible to choose if you want macro or VBA code?
