  2. Bug - Nav Pane Custom Groups contents changing unexpectedly

    I use Custom Groups in the Navigation Pane of Access to keep track of objects I am changing for various tasks, so I know at a glance what objects to submit to our update process.

    Sometimes, the items in a Group will change. I'm not talking about linked tables or queries not showing after a relink. I'll have put FormA in the group, and when I open the database, FormA is no longer in the group, but FormD is. Same for report objects, modules and queries.

    Problem is, I have not found a pattern of when this happens. Sometimes it's…

  3. Bring back Pivot Table capabilities to Access

    Microsoft needs to review "Voice of the Customer" portions of Six Sigma process Improvement (which you seem to have forgotten).

    Why would you take away a major long term feature in Access and lamely refer it to Excel that can't handle large data sets as well?

    Please restore this feature.

  4. Ity would be great if there was a one-click button to update Access 2016 with/from Outlook 2016

    I found that altho9u9gh I could import data from Outlook, with existing notes, That subsequent emails and notes were not registered within Access.
    Also their should be a button so that when working with a contact in Access, we can click a button to write an email and it opens Outlook email

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Access 365 runtime bug

    Since the office update 2019 version 2009 (build 13231.20262) it is impossible for my users to open a program with Access 365 32-bit runtime, there is a message like "the database was unrecognized format ..."

    P.S. if I compile my program on another computer with an earlier version, everything works.
    Any solution otherwise an Office roolback version?

  14. VBA / API Method to get O365 Version

    Prior to O365, we could easily get the version + build via VBA/API. This enables developers to insure that end users have the necessary version to run our apps. With O365 there is no way to get the 'Version' or 'Click-to-Run', as is viewable in the UI Version 2003 (Build 12624.20382 Click-to-Run).
    Updates are now pushed automatically, including breaking changes, without any warning.
    There really needs to be a way to get the full version info via code.

  16. asset removal

    asset removal must be with an authority code, since an employee could be working on filling the asset list but shouldn't have the authority to remove it without higher authority

  20. Criteria language unification

    I find it annoying that everytime I send an .accdb file with multiple queries and forms to a collegue who uses ACCESS in a different language, I have to do a search/replace of every criteria in all queries and translate it to his language (for example : Forms -> Formulaire, Reports -> Etats ...)
    It would be easier is all criteria were coded by default in English, and then showed to users in their UI language? Or maybe automatically translate all criteria when UI language is changed?
