  1. Replace VBA with .NET Core then make cross platform and cloud

    This is a great RAD app, it should be available to all users on any OS. Please keep it relevant. I may turn ancient otherwise cause I'm gonna to keep using it for prototyping!

    Access is cool.

    Please don't die.

    • 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.

      • Solving Bug in Table Design View

        Hello Everyone,
        I have incurred in a big and curios problem recently. While I was designing a Table through the Design View Window, Access just shot down. I looked up on the internet, tried everything the problem was still there. I eventually solved it, but what was strange is that this problem apparently happened because of too many stuff in the Quick Access Toolbar bar. Once i removed them, the problem disappeared. Strange.

        • 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…

          • 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.
