  1. listcount

    Small bug in List Boxes - if you show column headings, the list count includes the column heading. For example - if the list box diplays no records the the list count is zero. If there is one record then the list count is 2

  2. Database Compare Tool for Access

    We have a O365 Business Premium subscription and just found that this tool is not included in our package. Multiple versions of a database are a natural consequence of developing Access apps. In my opinion, this tool should be included in any package that includes Access. Thanks

  3. Exporting to Excel limited to 64K records!

    Get rid of the 64,000 record limit when exporting to Excel. I almost always deal with more than 64K records. Or am I missing something?

  5. Additional status for tracking Access User Voice ideas

    We currently have: "Need more info", "Planned", "Done!" and "No Current Plan". I propose we add: "Started", "Cancelled", "Accepting Votes" and "Already Supported" so we can better track our ideas.

  6. Solving Bug in Table Design View

    Hello Everyone,
    I have incurred in a big and curios problem recently. While I was designing a Table through the Design View Window, Access just shot down. I looked up on the internet, tried everything the problem was still there. I eventually solved it, but what was strange is that this problem apparently happened because of too many stuff in the Quick Access Toolbar bar. Once i removed them, the problem disappeared. Strange.

  9. Add an option to re-order form-items

    Til now you can re-order tab-order of items of a form, however the .form.items-collection is not reordered.
    Add an option to re-order items also by id (sequence in collection) or whatever.

  11. idea for fix of a query that stops working

    When sorting a query, I've found that if after sorting I then rename the query, the query stops working. It works again if I undo sorting. It seems the query is trying to sort the data according to the earlier naming of the quwery, even after the query has been renamed.

  12. Code Window in Form Design

    Instead of separate window where coding takes place outside of form design, have it as a window positionable beside or below the form design.

  17. Create a developers version including functionality to create Web forms.

    Microsoft wasted money developing LightSwitch and Access web Apps.
    Invest in a new developers version of Msaccess that has controls similar to DevExpress or Telerik that can create .Net apps as well. I.T would easily pay 000's $ per developer and Microsoft would make money on MSaccess.

  19. Improvement of SQL Azure DB maximum size (1GB) on Sharpoint Online

    My name is Yosiki-Tojo.
    I sometimes request an improvement of SQL Azure DB of Access Web.
    Now, upper limit size of this DB is 1 GB,
    This is very small of these day's business application.
    Anyone can understand that this is too small.

    Now, I have two prospects for Access Web.
    One is flower shop chain, other is clothing rental shop.
    They have large image datum for customer selection.
    However, I can't proposse Office 365 because of this limitation.

    I'll hope this limitation will be improve , such as 5GB or 10GB.
    Additional fee is OK.

    Thanks.
    Best Regards

  20. Stop taking over .mat files. *I didn't even instal Access*

    .mat files are used by many apps, two of which I use almost daily - Unity3D and VRay in 3ds Max. Somehow they get along. Maybe because they don't try some bargie file extension takeover tactic. Wasn't there a time when this was in poor taste? OK .mov I get it, very rarely is anything else going to use that file extension. Go ahead, Quicktime. But Microsoft - .mat? Seriously? And not just the "open with", but the nature of the file(now a shortcut)?

    Some time in the last 24 hours, I'm guessing, Office and/or Windows applied some sort of…
