  1. Support Importing AIP Protected Excel/TXT files into Microsoft Access

    AIP protected Excel document and the protected extension of txt file (.pTXT) are not importable to Microsoft Access application

    Impact:

     - User not able to import/Process protected files into MS Access desktop application
    
    - MS Access macros not able to get data from protected files

    Not protecting the company’s confidential files with Azure information protection to let the users import files to MS Access is risking data exposure and unauthorized usage.

  2. Add an additional GetOption/SetOption option to set the Startup Form

    Sometimes we want to programmatically set the startup form and that is currently not possible.
    Please add GetOption("Display Form") and SetOption("Display form").
    I would use this feature in my "To Convention" code that fixes up bad naming convention.

  3. Incorporar la tecnología de Project Nucleus a las listas vinculadas

    Con Project Nucleus las listas se sincronizarían con una BD local con lo se podría trabajar sin conexión y se eliminarían los problemas de las listas demasiado largas. Si esto funcionara también con las listas vinculadas, Sharepoint se convertiría en un estupendo back-end para Access.

  4. Access for Mac!!

    I'm currently taking college classes while I'm in high school, and my parents got me a laptop so I could do my work on it. The problem is that I need Access to do some of my work. I don't understand how I can have Excel and Word but not Access. I would really appreciate it if y'all could make Access on Mac. Its 2020 people and I'm at home in quarantine (can't go to school and use their computers) and I need to get my work done.

  5. Create a connector for SharePoint

    Hi,

    In the menu External Data > New Data Source, there is no way to connect to an Excel file stored in a SharePoint folder.

    That's a problem because more and more companies use SharePoint and all the Excel in the SharePoint are "invisible" for Access

  7. Make the predefined templates more flexible for users

    I currently cannot add a column to a predefined template in Access. This makes the template unusable to me, and I only need to add one more column.

    There is no "Click to add" option available. Be great if there was!

    It would also be useful if it states in the online Help that this is the case; predefined templates cannot be edited. I spent a long time trying to solve this but it was only through online chat support where I eventually found out that adding a column was not possible.

  8. Fix System Resource Exceeded error with large files

    Ever since we upgraded to the latest Windows 10 version and MS 2019 version, our previously working update queries for ~100,000 records are failing and throwing the System Resource Exceeded error! This is unacceptable.

    The issue is reproducible on multiple computers with the latest upgrade and working on the non-upgraded computers. Many users are suffering from this issue as you can see here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/access/system-resources-exceeded-error/m-p/1791077

  9. Integrate MS Access with Power Apps

    I've been looking more into Power Apps, and I think it would be great for you to work with the Power Apps team to provide a web and mobile solution to what Access can do today on the premises of a server. Because there is unfortunately no web version of Access, maybe Power Apps can help solve this problem? Ideally, we should be able to continue moving (and linking) Access data into SQL and then create a Power App on top of the "Access-created" data from SQL; essentially viewing a Power Application that looks exactly like access but online and…

    This is great feedback that we are actually working on providing now. Using the comments below, we’d love to hear thoughts about solely focusing on SQL as a stepping stone to Power Apps for data migration purposes, or also investing in another way for you to connect to Power Apps through the Common Data Service (CDS). This database allows you to store, share and manage your data over the web, and eventually the phone (current MS investment). CDS is also Power Apps’ central underlying storage unit, as well as the entire Power Platform team’s key investment.
    Please see following link for information about CDS, and let us know: if Access created a data export & linked table capability from our platform to CDS, would you use it?:
    https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdocs.microsoft.com%2Fen-us%2Fpowerapps%2Fmaker%2Fcommon-data-service%2Fdata-platform-intro&data=04%7C01%7CEbo.Quansah%40microsoft.com%7C32c26c86b7fe4f3162a508d7f069896d%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C637242208373640123%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C-1&sdata=GuvQ6o2aqKiBMs%2B1z2nvv0sNtAHNl8MPQqiOvsh0D1U%3D&reserved=0

    We will still continue to make investments in SQL connection either way, but we are also happy to…

  10. Increase Accdb file size capacity

    2 GB size storage capacity, could be enough for maybe more than 5 years that if small growth of data entry, but for thousands of data could be entries in just 1 year it would be a fear to reach it's limit. For me i don't need 10 GB but maybe 4 GB could be better than what we have today.

  13. improve appearance and design of Access Forms

    modern optical effects like in Windows 10 or modern webpages would heavily improve the value of created Apllications.
    Better Mouseover-Effects for Buttons, Fading Effects for Forms....
    it would be great!

  15. MS Access 365 - Properties difficult to read

    When in Access 365 and working on a form or a report, etc - the properties are very small. Pls make option available to make bigger or an option to change the font size to a larger option. It is difficult to read and in Field properties the line is a little long. This would help so much. Thank you.

  17. Windows Date settings effecting format function

    Discovered today 19.2.21
    Windows update forced user settings to display region in a whole different country and the Windows data format for short date changed from (dd/mm/yyyy) to (dd MMM yyyy).
    The format function used to format dates into a manor fit for SQL server failed. Format(date,"yyyy/MM/dd") resulted in the answer (yyyy MM dd) using spaces instead of backslashes. Once the windows setting was changed back to (dd/mm/yyyy) the error vanished. When trying to replicate the issue the regional settings would no longer allow the short date option (dd MMM yyyy) therefore we could not rhobustly test this error.

  19. Enable accde's to show in Recent list and be "pinned"

    When you right click on the Access Icon on the Task Bar it only shows accdb files. If you have opened an accde it is not listed!
    This is matched in the Recent list of the file tab too.
    Please fix this (again).
