  3. Access will not utilize 100% of bandwidth when saving file

    Microsoft Access does not consume 100% of the available bandwidth when you have opened a file from a network location and then are saving (save-as) back to any network location.

    I have utilized this method to simulate another issue, where I find that even when working in Access (when opened from a network location) the program does not utilize 100% of the available bandwidth. When working with larger files (1GB+) this causes an issue where the software will crash and not respond, even when just navigating through tables. Running queries and saving also prompts this issue.

    Why does Access not…

  5. Update Dark Gray & Black Office Themes to make reading text & viewing objects clearer

    I am seeing light grey text on white which makes text unreadable. Also white text on white lines making text difficult to read. Join line is pixelated, and theme does not appear to be consistent throughout. See https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Access/Microsoft-Office-2019-Now-Available-Comparing-2019-2016-365-New/m-p/780689 for screenshot of query design view with suggestions.

  6. Zooming in on the page preview of reports with a mouseclick disables keyboard navigation

    Clicking on the background reenables keyboard navigation. Zooming in with the ribbon or the context menu works fine.

  9. 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.

  10. Method of exporting MBOX to PST

    MBOX file is supported by 25+ email clients mailboxes such as Gmail, Apple Mail, SeaMonkey, Entourage, Netscape, Eudora & others. But no application exports the mailbox in PST file format. On the other hand, the manual process is useless with a large mailbox plus it does not maintain the folder hierarchy.
    So if you want to export direct MBOX to PST format with all mail folder, inline images and attachment than adopt MailsDaddy MBOX to PST Converter. This is the most relevant program that no only migrate MBOX to PST format but also allows user to import MBOX file in…

  14. Student Database

    The Student Database template uses a tabbed form to access alternative data on a specific student. I would like to be able to add 2 more tabs, but when I set them up, they don't point to the specific student in the overarching form. Can you include a table in the template that gives some explanation on how the writer did this with the other tabs?

  16. Change name of field property Append Only for long text field

    The name "Append Only" field property for the Long Text Data Type is misleading. Consider changing it to "Allow Column History".

  18. Labels printing blank from Report Preview

    I have an issue that happens from time to time at my current job. I can see the report label in the preview option however it prints blank labels for some odd reason. The report preview looks fine but the result is blank labels. I'm using a Zebra 410 printer and the labels are 1" margins. I already tried to reproduce the issue by changing the margins but it prints fine. Not able to reproduce the issue as of this moment. Looking for any pointers or suggestions.
