  4. Allow Customization of Access Chart Colors.

    It seems bizarre to me there's no way to change the color scheme of different pie charts etc. It would improve the visual look and feel of reports and dashboards immensely if we could customise the "new and modern" charts a bit more!

  5. Bug Fix for Access 2016 64 bit VBA DAO Update Query Bug in Long Text Parameter

    Reposted here from MS Community Forums based on replies there:


    Hello,

    Where I work I seem to have found some bugs in MS Access 64 bit (not in 32 bit) relating to using VBA to call update queries.

    When calling an Update query from the current database via a 'qdf' object that has one or more long text fields to be updated, and supplying the values for those updates via Long Text parameters, it seems that supplying either a 1 or 2 character value can cause Access to crash when the qdf is executed, depending on the position of the…

  6. Fix: Win 10 Pro Office 2016 Pro "Could not use '<path\file.accdb>'; file already in use" with all Access DBs as soon as Compact / Repair

  8. Printing Vertical

    Maps can't be rotated when creating images to print. True.

    But if there are "4x6" and "8.5x11" sheet sizes, is it not possible to also create "6x4" and "11x8.5" sheet sizes so that there is at least one other orientation option. (Some text might be oriented wrong, but for some territory shapes it would be worth the slight inconvenience)

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. 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

  16. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
