  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  9. 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

  13. 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?

  14. 365 Update breaking the database drivers

    This happened to a lot of our clients back in 2016.

    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/office/en-US/7964a808-81dd-49a5-8883-3d62cd03af5a/the-operating-system-is-not-presently-configured-to-run-this-application?forum=vclanguage

    I have not had this problem until this week and have gotten three calls about it. At least I can run the install of the 2010 drivers to fix it. I was told I should leave a heads up here about the issue.

    Thanks, Dan.

  15. improve richtext Editor: static menue bar and insertion of pictures

    the richtext Editor is ok and can be used for simple html formattings.
    But the useability is awful, instead of marking the text and moving the mouse there should be an option to permanantly show the menue bar. There should be an option to insert a picture.

  16. improve format options for some controls


    1. Formatting functionality (shapes/styles) for buttons replicated for textboxes, labels and rectangles, perhaps others.

    2. Option to resize and format check and option boxes

    3. The option for a line to include an arrowhead and perhaps flight. aka shapes in excel/word.

    4. The ability to map one control to another (similar to labels mapping to controls) but with the ability to choose which corner maps to which corner

  17. BUG: deep hiding tables removes data from complex datatype fields

    A fellow developer reported this fairly obscure bug to me as I work extensively with what I call 'deep hidden' tables using property dbHiddenObject (MSysObjects Flags=1). If a table containing data in attachment or multi value fields is 'deep hidden', the data APPEARS to be deleted from those fields. The data is NOT restored if the tables are returned to normal.
    I have tested this and confirmed it to be true. I have also checked the contents of the related deep hidden system tables (each beginning with f_...) and the actual complex data is still present. However the user tables…

  18. Increase Accdb file size capacity

    2 GB size storage capacity, could be enough for maybe more than 5 years that if small growth of data entry, but for thousands of data could be entries in just 1 year it would be a fear to reach it's limit. For me i don't need 10 GB but maybe 4 GB could be better than what we have today.

    networkdays is a key concept in service level agreement measurement and project management reporting. It measures workdays between two dates. This function exists in Excel and should be easy to port into Access
