      • Give us the ability to do a Partial Compress & repair on the current database

        Give us the ability to request a partial Compress & Repair at the table level within an opened database.
        It should not be impossible to compress database records and disk pages at the table level, bypassing and freeing up any space no longer needed for deleted data records and index entries.
        Given Microsoft refusal to consider revamping the database Access database files to allow for larger databases, then giving us the ability to better manage the available 2GB of space by making incremental requests to compress & repair thins partially at the table-level could be a meaningful compromise. This could…

          • Option and property to enable/disable Replace tab in Find and Replace dialog box

            Find is very useful for users but I always afraid one day they will click Replace tab and make a mistake by replaces some data in the table which it is impossible to recover back.

            • Increase the limit of resources for the formulars, reports and tables

              Each opened form, subform, report and table uses resources, if you open some forms with sub forms, depending on how much linked tables they contain, access can reach the resource-limit and crash with the error message "Cannot open any more databases". In our case access reach its limit already after 4 opened forms. We already use subforms and other performance improvements.

              • Can we have onClick() events on the bars/columns/slices in the new charts

                Love the new charts but can we have onClick() events on the bars/columns/slices so that create drill downs using VBA
                Always made me sad that MSGraph had events in Excel but not Access.

                • If you copy a database and access it at one time it breaks

                  Only Windows 10:
                  When you save your changes and a data recovery service copy your edited files at the same time, they could break.

                  • Enable Access (and all VBA apps) to work with the new Microsoft Graph

                            • Create an appointment booking system template

                              I would like to create an appointment booking system that I can add into an existing database. I'd like to be able to schedule an appointment which will show up in both Access and Outlook. I think it would be beneficial to have a template which allows you to create, edit and cancel appointments on the database, will give you pop-up reminders, and send emails to specific people with reminders etc. for their appointment. It should have an calendar overview and give you access to all of the information you have on your contacts.

                              • It would be nice if when adding an attachment to Access that it brings up a list of recently opened files to select from as outlook does.

                                Adding files to an access db would be easier if it brings up a list of recently opened files that can be selected just as Outlook does.

                                    Therefore data in the form is not refreshed which may lead to faulty calculations being displayed until you manually refresh the form.

                                    • Zooming in on the page preview of reports with a mouseclick disables keyboard navigation

                                      Clicking on the background reenables keyboard navigation. Zooming in with the ribbon or the context menu works fine.

                                      • Importing CSV files results in errors on german systems

                                        On german systems semicolons are used instead of commas which is not accounted for when importing.

                                        • Performance problems when multiple users access files on NAS drives

                                          Loading times increase drastically the more users access the file.
