  1. 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.

  2. 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?

  3. 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. Fix a bug in the Application.PlainText() method

    I found a bug in the Application.PlainText() method. This method "Strips the rich text formatting from a string and returns an unformatted text string."

    I don't know where else to report a bug like this. I reported the CTRL+A SQL editor bug to UserVoice and it was fixed.

    I am writing a SQL formatter that will adjust the layout and colorize a SQL statement in a Rich Text box. I expect PlainText() to remove Rich Text formatting without corrupting the SQL statement.

    You can reproduce this bug in the Immediate Window.

    ? PlainText("SELECT Record_ID,<BR>'Hello ' & Name")

    correctly returns:

    SELECT…

  10. "Open Databases using Record-Level Locking" does not work reliably

    Often no lines are locked at all, sometimes multiple lines which are not being edited are locked. In addition data only automatically refreshes occasionally and does not properly sync when there are different edits on different instances.
    This was tested both opening the same file twice on one computer and opening the same file on a shared drive with different computers.

  13. Todo section of calendar - client should be on left and subject on right

    On the Todo's section of the calendar, the Subject should be on the right side and the Client should be on the left side. You have it reverse. Interestingly odd that when the report prints it is client on left and subject on right. Can't you make the todo section of the calendar the same.

  14. Allow office to be installed on secondary hard drive.

    Old versions of office allowed users to install on any hard drive they wanted. The current office 2016 consumes up valuable hard drive space for the Operating System. Allow the user to decide where they want it installed. To make it easy have a express or custom option for installation. I have seen many companies use this option it allows easy installation for those who are less tech savvy and those who have experience to customize their installation. I use Visual Studio 2017 and it allows an installation option. THIS IS A MUST most people have small hard drives for…

  16. I am trying to import data from .csv and missing the ability to import a field formatted as a simple date.

    I was looking for Microsoft Access assistance for an issue I'm having with importing date data from a .csv file. I'd like to import as Date, Short Date. The only option I'm seeing is Date with Time, which does not work when importing my date data. Using the date with time option actually deletes all of the dates that I'm trying to import. If I select text, I need to go in and change all date fields after each import to be date, short date formatted. Help please! Am I missing something? Can this be fixed, or will I need…

  17. Add a Development Tab/Ribbon to the UI

    This exists in the other key Office apps. Why not in Access? Of course, we can create one manually. But why not out-of-the-box?

  18. Additional status for tracking Access User Voice ideas

    We currently have: "Need more info", "Planned", "Done!" and "No Current Plan". I propose we add: "Started", "Cancelled", "Accepting Votes" and "Already Supported" so we can better track our ideas.

  20. In Pipeline template, make the Opportunty List column names the same word as the Customer List imported from Outlook; ie Customer =Company

    To use the template for Pipeline; it would be advantageous to import contacts from Outlook (which it does) and have the Customer name in the Open Opportunities List be the same Field Name as Company, and then have the Employee fill with First Name and Last Name from the customer list (cf Outlook).
    Possibly have the category sync from Outlook category also, but be able to override it.
