I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Leave right-click menu searching options available in runtime

    The right-click menu on DS forms contains BOTH design and user elements. Rather than removiing the entire menu in runtime mode, just remove the design options and leave the user-friendly searching features available.

    • Create a truly locked down FE format

      ULS was a pain and way too many people implemented it incorrectly but it did serve a function which we have lost. People who develop Access apps for others need a way to completely lock down the FE. The .accde doesn't cut it because users can still modify tables, queries, and macros. We need something that acts like the .accdr but which isn't a trick. I understand why creating an .exe is not an option but you should be able to create a "permanent" format that acts like .accdr but which can't be undone by simply renaming the file. That…

      • Fix/remove the 'Powered by Microsoft Access' button

        Since 2016 clicking the 'Powered by' button in the bottom right corner of the runtime goes to a web page that no longer exists. Looks like it is the same link from Access 2013...

        2 minute fix to make things look a little more professional - OR - remove the feature altogether as I don't see the point if you are not going to promote Access.

        • Package accdr with the runtime

          Please make Access package the runtime with mde/accde/accdr into a standalone EXE like VFP and RBase to avoid the annoying setup and version conflict and make it a truly stand alone app.
