  1. Fix Bug - InStr And InStrRev

    InStr or InStrRev function results in error or crashes database if sort order is “General”).
    Work around: Options > General > New database sort order > General - Legacy’, followed by ‘compact database’.
    The behaviour is very odd in that e.g. it may or may not work first time after reboot / logon, but fails subsequently. Compacting and then restarting the database never fixes the issue.
    This problem resulted from recent (Quarter 2 to July 2020) Windows and / or Access 2019 updates.

  2. For starters, could you have feedback on the latest edge and not IE 11. I would like for Word or Outlook to have a different colour icon.

    For starters, could you have feedback on the latest edge and not IE 11. I would like for Word or Outlook to have a different coloured icon. They are both on my taskbar and it's annoying when you look down quickly and think you are choosing one when you choose the other. All the other colours make quick selection easy, but 2 blues?

  7. Allow contact info to be changed. It is tied to location, but we have a different point of contact

    In the contact info box, we cannot change the default name to our local contact. The name that populates is a person that does not work in this facility.

  8. Enable us to lock the tab we're working on within a Tab Control

    Working on controls within a Tab Control can be very frustrating. You can't drag a box around controls, because you end up moving the Tab Control containing them and I'm forever accidentally selecting the Tab Control.

    Can we have some way of locking us on to the selected tab, locking the Tab Control's position and allowing us to drag a box around controls on a Tab Control?

  10. Datasheet enhancements

    Please increase the size of the footer of the data sheet to make it easier to see and use the record controls. The number of records box should be much bigger to see large record numbers. Also, the search box should be at the top of the datasheet to make it more intuitive to use and be inline with the emphasis Microsoft now gives search in all its applications. I would like to see wrappable columns heading. And the filter button, the add button and a delete and refresh button at the upper right hand part of the datasheet so…

  11. Include Find/Replace dialogue when using Shift F2 to edit code

    I use code for the recordset property of a form and if I need to make changes I cut and paste to notepad but now we have "find & replace" in the SQL Editor. Can this functionality be incuded if editing the recordsource property or perhaps open the sql editor to make this easier.

    Thanks for the great work on the Editor it really helps!

  12. Hello! I would like to see boundries with dashed lines as an option.

    My congregation is use to seeing dashed line boundaries to mean just doing one side of a street. With that feature, you can pick one part of the boundary or the entire outer boundary to have a dashed line. Would be a nice feature to have.

  19. Backstage Fix version 2005

    The BackStage of the latest release of Access as of 19/June/2020 appears to override the custom Backstage built via the usysribbons table. The File, New, Open, Account Tabs among others are visible even if the custom usys ribbon explicitly says not to include them. This then places our custom backstage into a nested Tab instead of being the default full screen Backstage as intended.

  20. Display MsgBox upon closing Access asking if user wants to repair the database before closing it.

    Access decides indiscriminately, while I am working on a VBA module in my db, to repair it and make a backup copy. This wipes out all breakpoints and bookmarks. VERY FRUSTRATING!!! This should NEVER happen while I am working on a db. At the very least, display a message asking me if I want to repair the db now and include a check box for repairing the db ONLY ON CLOSING!!! I have found no property setting that affects this. I would appreciate a response in order to fix the problem. I tend to think of this as a privacy…
