  4. Un petit bug dans le reporting Access

    I think there is a small bug in Access Reports…
    When a report contains a png or embedded image, this is not printed if you print it directly on the printer. If I create a Pdf, and then print the pdf report, the logo is visible.

  7. Cambiar la altura de la fila de encabezado en un hoja de datos

    La idea es poder manipular la altura de la fila de encabezado de una hoja de datos para poder darle un alto suficiente capaz de mostrar todo el título de la columna, pero sin cambiar su anchura.

  8. give users a warning when an update statement fails to add a new record to a recordset

    When using an update statement (via Excel VBA) to add records to a database no error message is given when the update statement fails to add the record.

    Using a loop to add records to a recordset, when one of the addnew statements fail no error message is given to the users and none of the other items in the loop following the record that fails get processed.

    EG_If the loop has 100 records to add, if the 50th record fails, then the records 51 to 100 in the loop don't get processed. BUT NO ERROR MESSAGE!!!

  9. Fix cursor alignment when editing USysRibbons XML text.

    Custom UI xml is uneditable from within Access at the table level, from queries or forms, due to the cursor not being properly aligned with the text. I would love to be able to manage my content controls from within the application, instead of copy pasting the xml from external applications and hiding/unhiding the USysRibbons table. It's not an overly complicated task to validate XML from vba, but the inability to easily edit the text, makes it impossible to incorporate this workflow.

  11. Field Properties in Table Design, needs to be on the right, like it is for Forms and Reports

    Table deign is a huge waste of screen real estate - the field property dialog should be on the right side of the screen, like it is in report and form design, with the drop down button right next to the property's text, not on the other side of the screen. Not a single property is longer than the name of the property choices available, and the ones that could be longer, just bring up the Expression Builder dialog anyway. The idea being to get as much usable information on the screen as possible - like all of my field…

  12. Add a transposed view option to query design - columns and rows swapped.

    The standard view is hard to use... being able to see all of my fields in query design at one time and the very few, rarely used; sort, criteria, table, etc options to one side would be much easier to use/maintain. Too much scrolling and resizing involved. We currently have 6 default row options in a Select query, but can only see 11 fields at the default size meaning any long field names or expressions are truncated or push related fields off the screen, that you need to see while editing the other.

  13. MS Outlook - Add option in Rules to redirect email according to domain extension

    Rules in Outlook allow for a lot of email redirecting, but not by domain extension. I was starting to get a lot of junk email from domain extension, ".de" which refers to the Republic of Germany. I don't have anything to do with that are of the world. I just want to 'mark as read'/delete any email with that domain extension.

  15. Access con Windows 10 si blocca e si butta il programma se cambio una scritta o immagine in Pannello Comandi in maschera principale

    Non sto parlando dei titoli dei programmi che funzionano da Comandi, ma di qualsiasi altra scritta o immagine presente. Ciò mi sembra che dipenda dal fatto che adesso non c'è più la possibilità di "stabilire" quale pagina farà da apertura per l'intero programma, mentre nelle prime edizioni si poteva scegliere. Se lo stesso programma si "manipola" con Windows 7, ciò non succede. Io da oltre 20 anni costruisco programmi successfully con ACCESS, non solo Data Base ma anche Giochi tipo Tombola, Gioco dell'Oca, Biglietteria and more and more, per cui sono "addentro" al programma, ma gli errori "strutturali" non li…

  16. Provide a method for printing selected items from the Help Panel.

    Perhaps this capability exists in MS Access 2016 but I am not aware of it. Thank you.

  18. Access Chart Add Features

    There seem to be several things missing in the new "modern" charts in Access. A couple of things I have run into include:


    • The gridlines don't seem to work, nor can I find a property to set their color

    • There doesn't seem to be a place to set the desired color for each bar of a graph

    • There doesn't seem to be a way to modify the sort order (or any of the SQL) of the "Transformed Row Source", for example to sort the categories by descending value

    • Can't find settings to vary the tick marks etc.

    Maybe I'm missing…

  19. Modern UX Menu Tree Control

    This Control would have a Modern Appearance that we see on a lot of Websites using the Bootstrap technology. When the User resizes the Application, it would respond and collapse to a hash icon of some type.

    This Control would be Table Sourced, where the Developer could enter Custom Search Terms and then map it to an existing Form Object. A default could be set to inherit the existing Custom Category, or inherit the Parent Child Navigation Buttons on a Navigation Control. The Developer could Customize from there. The Possibilities are endless.

    The built-in Navigator exposes too many objects to…

  20. Give back the ability to add grid lines to modern charts

    Grid lines are a fundamental part of any non-pie chart. They allow for quick interpretation of the data. Please add the ability to add major and minor grid lines.
