  7. Gridlines to Modern Access Charts

    The 'modern' charts in MS Access no longer allows for gridlines to be set. The gridlines can be a great visual aid in charts to quickly access where the value plotted lies in relation to the axis. It was present in the 'old' charts but is no longer available in the 'modern' charts. I would also recommend adding scatter plots to the modern charts. Just FYI, your free/opensource counterparts have them already implemented within their packages.

  8. BugFix: Attachment Control

    This is an issue that is driving me nuts. I have a small database with 2 forms and a report.

    Setup
    Create a table with a few text fields and an attachment field. (Table1)
    Create a form bound to Table1 (Form1)
    Create an unbound form with a command button (Form2)
    Create an unbound report with a chart (bound to table1 data or query) (Report1)

    Create a command button on form1 to open form2
    Form2 command button to open report1

    Issue Duplication:
    Open Form1 – Add data and add an attachment. Click button to open form2
    Open Form2 – Click button…

  12. Issue: Access opens new instance of a program for each hyperlink

    Hello,
    I have a problem with Access (Version 1904 , build 11601.20204) :

    After clicking on hyperlink (file located on local drive or network drive) from Access database , each file is opened in single instance (instead of opening as a new pane in running instance) no matter what type of file it is (cdr, xls, docx, txt). The only exception is pdf which is opened correctly in a single instance.

    The most important for us is the cdr (CorelDraw) as it takes about 20 seconds to start each instance and open a file (20 users, each opens 20 -…

  13. STOP LOCKING OUR MATERIAL BECAUSE WE CANNOT AFFORD TO RENEW 365

    STOP SELLING THE SAME PROGRAMS EVERY YEAR AND LOCKING MY INFORMATION THAT I NEED TO ACCESS. This is terrible. I remember the time when we purchased WORD, POWERPOINT, ACCESS, EXCEL and the not have to worry that you all will lock up our information because we cannot afford to continually purchase the same programs to get our OWN materials. I am a senior citizen 72 and cannot get to my contacts in ACCESS, can't get to my slides in POWERPOINT that I OWN. And cannot get to my WORD files of the books that I have written over the years.…

  14. Fix new Settings Incompatibility Bug

    I believe I have hit a new bug in ACCESS.
    This conflict shows up when a front end using standard Access SQL connects to a Back-end using SQL Server Syntax (ANSI92).
    It results in very strange behavior with Combo-Boxes failing to Auto-Complete and Wildcard Queries not returning results.
    Access 2010 is immune! Phew.

    It is repeatable and can be reproduced by following the process:
    There appears to be a new bug in ACCESS 365 / Click to Run.
    It DOES NOT EXHIBIT on Access 2010, but I have not tested with 2013.

    Issue: Combo Boxes (drop-downs) fail to Auto-Complete List…

  15. Fix Ukrainian locale issues

    Fix bug in Ukrainian locale of Access, when it translates also aggregate functions (for example, Count or Sum) in design view, which tends query to have syntax errors (functions are inserted into SQL query in Ukrainian, not in their original form).
    Same bug is for Like operator in design view of queries and expression builder of field rules.

  16. Synchronize the field Notes of Outlook Contacts with Access

    You can easily synchronize your Outlook Contacts with an Access Database, but there is one field that is not synchronized: the notes field.

    I would like to have the notes synchronized with my database.

  19. Events Database

    Hello,

    In this instance I’m looking for a Microsoft Access Calendar Scheduling Database template, functional on versions Access 2013 and 2016.

    The Event Management Template appears to meet one aspect of this. However, I could not identify a functional calendar using the forms where there is the capability to link the event to a day within the calendar.

    Thanks.

  20. Enable option to suppress warnings about another user being changing the same dataset.

    When multiple users are working simultaneously on the same Access database, Access is constantly warning that another user has changed the dataset in meantime. In multiuser environment this is often annoying and unnecessary. Access should enable option to switch-off these warnings.
