  1. Sort the image gallery by name not ID

    There was a recent discussion at a virtual user group meeting on how to export all images in the gallery, then re-import them ordered by name. Seems like a lot of to do that every time you add an image.

    It would be a lot easier if Access just sorted by name not the ID.

  6. 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.

  8. improve richtext Editor: static menue bar and insertion of pictures

    the richtext Editor is ok and can be used for simple html formattings.
    But the useability is awful, instead of marking the text and moving the mouse there should be an option to permanantly show the menue bar. There should be an option to insert a picture.

  9. Fix inlined member calls, on user objects on 64-bit VBA

    In 64-bit VBA hosts, inlined member calls on user objects don't work like on 32-bit VBA hosts.

    Given a UserClass with a getter/setter and a Class_Terminate handler (even it is empty).
    And in a TestModule a factory procedure returning an instance of this class and also setting the setter.

    When I now use this procedure and inline check the value of the getter like in the following sample, it results in a different behaviour compared to 32-bit VBA:

    If CreateUserClass(True).TheValue Then

    Please take a look in the attached text file for a complete sample:

    UserClass.cls:

    Private mValue As Boolean

    Private…

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. In Access documentation, include the Access version(s) in which the feature is available

    In the Access documentation, please include the version in which each feature was introduced. That will make it possible to design in one version of Access and know that the database will run on an earlier version. Right now, the only way I know to do this is to test the database on an earlier version and find the components which aren't available by trial-and-error.

    (Note: that I've posted a similar suggestion in officespdev.uservoice.com for the Access VBA reference.)

  15. Add nore functionality to the tabluar arrangement in forms and reports.

    In forms and reports, the tabular arrangement of controls and their labels is very limited. In reports, it is not possible to have the headers placed in group headers on the report. Cutting and pasting the labels into other than page headers removes the ability to coordinate the size of the label and the control.
    Please add the ability to select the location of the labels and controls when creating a tabular arrangement

  16. Why is it so hard to get at database Objects' metadata?

    These items are VERY useful when we are asked to go fix a previous coder/employee who may or may not be with us any more. Elsewhere in this forum others have suggested adding Notes field with date/time stamps for each object. I endorse that.

    Would be really sweet if there was a quick way to get to items like the Description field in a Table definition, the existing Description field for objects (right click on object in Database or F11 window). I note that a right click is pretty quick, but this means you can only see one object at…

  17. Access MDB File Viewer

    Access files sometimes become inaccessible due to corruption or virus attack.

    At that moment opening and viewing the data inside the MDB file is hard to achieve.

    For such reasons the Access users start using other application, Don't do that because,

    I came to know about a tool which can open, read and read the deleted or corrupted MDB files with ease.

    easily view the MDB files and access your data with ease.

    get full information here: https://github.com/happycool007/MDB-file-viewer-online

  18. To make it possible to make / maintain Table triggers via VBA

    In stead / top of datamacros it would be very nice to have the ability to manage table triggers via VBA (like forms); easier to maintain, all the code in 1 place and more tools/functions etc available.

  19. 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?
