  1. allow for table and query views to be snap-docked with adjustable borders

    Currently, objects (tables etc) can only be viewed as tabbed or floating windows. It will be handy to allows the windows to be snap-docked so that space can be be optimised and multiple windows can be viewed with minimum time spent adjusting the borders.

  3. Decimal data types and Calculated fields in DAO.recordset (build 16.0.12827.20152)

    Anyone having problems with DAO.Recordsets and calculated fields in the latest Insider update (16.0.12827)

    So long I found:


    • When accessing a table field with "Decimal" data type, recordset returns empty string... Changing the data type to double fixes the issue


    • When accessing a query calculated field (sum) the DAO.Recordset returns empty string... Adding the CDbl to the query field fixes the issue.

  7. Correct a feature side effect: Display Display Text Scaling Vs. Access Navigation Pane.

    If the user uses the Windows display setting to increase the text size across all applications, the scaling corrupts the operation of the Access Navigation pane. Apparently the navigation pane cannot handle the change in scale and will not display properly.

  8. Make it possible to refresh Access.Printers without having to restart Access

    When using msaccess.exe via RemoteApp, sometimes printers are missing in the Access.Printers collection. But if you open Devices & Printers from the RemoteApp, you can see that they're there in the OS, but they were probably installing when Access was starting.

    Relaunching msaccess.exe cures the issue, but if it were possible to run a function to refresh Access's list of printers, that would be a preferable solution.

  9. Menu builder or Ribbon for our plicatives that are persisted on other computers

    Until the 2003 version of Office it was possible to create custom menu bars forour applications. As of the 2007 release this has been discontinued.

    It would be great if a way to build menu or ribbon for our systems were implemented. Because what is already possible to create, is not part of the database application but of Office Access itself and is not exported to our final application when used on another computer.

  14. 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.

  17. 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!

  18. 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…
