  1. Invalid Use of Null - error

    I see we still have the "invalid use of Null" bug which means that the create command button on the Design tab for forms fails. First encountered this back in Access 2006 and am surprised it has not been resolved yet. Once you get this bug, there seems to be no way of resolving it without reinstalling Access and potentially recreating databases from scratch. And it has just hit me again on a database with 30 tables, 20 queries and 16 forms. Can this bug be sorted out please?

  3. Linked Table Manager enhancement - Trigger events

    I understand the Linked Table Manager enhancements are on the MS Dev Team's agenda.
    I'd like to suggest that the enhanced Linked Table Manager expose a COM interface with EVENTS that a VBA app can detect and respond to.
    This could be of benefit to All Apps in an SDLC sense (we can query the tabledefs to connection info already, but can't detect when they are changed via the LTM or otherwise), and can allow some apps to react to protect the security or integrity of their data/connections.

    If the Linked Table Manager could expose events like:

    LTM Start
    LTM…

  7. Just get the first record for each whatever in a list

    In queries, when there are multiple records for criteria, it would be nice if we could specify to just get the first record matching a certain condition but show all records matching criteria for the query.

    Example:
    list of all last order dates for a customer

  8. Reference from Relative Position in a Query

    In Queries, it would be nice to be able to reference a value in a record relative to the current one.

    For instance, many times it is required to get a difference in a changed value

  9. Provide an easier method to return or pass property values to a dialog form

    I understand this would require a re-wickering of Access forms, but this is difficult to accomplish in Access without some serious workarounds. At least have something like a Dialogresult property as in .Net so the user can get simple values from the dialog form when closed.

  10. Increase the size of the record display in datasheet view footer

    Right now the size is not big enough in many cases depending on the number of records. Since datasheets are usually wide anyway, this can be easily increased.

  11. Additional Error Object properties - which procedure, which module, which object, which db

    The error object should be expanded to included properties which can reveal the procedure, module, and object that the error is taking place in.

  12. Create a GUI to Manage Shared Images

    There is currently no way to review image in the Gallery. It would be nice to have the mean to review, edit, delete the gallery.

  13. Make an EASY, built-in way to develop and keep pure VBA code, separate-but-visible-and-seamlessly-callable from any Office app.

    Probably impossible. But would have made a big difference to me while learning! Had slightly different versions of many of the same routines in several different apps before I even realized what was happening; took a very long time to separate back out.

  14. bloat

    it would be great if Access files would not Change the size so othen (bloat) and if the file size could be reduced. This would minimize Performance issues with different Virus Scanners and other issues.

  15. commandbar

    Please provide a meaningful value (other than the current " ") for the Name property of the Commandbar object representing the shortcut menu which comes up when you right-click the very top of a Form open in Form mode (and ditto for reports) so that this can easily be disabled in code. It is currently one of three Commandbars with no meaningful Name.

  17. Fix the Object Dependencies tool for Queries with table Aliases

    Object dependencies does not work correctly for queries where table alias are used. It displays the alias name, not the table name. This is very annoying.

  18. Copy of text does not work in Access

    Simply Control-C or right clicking Copy of text (and perhaps other stuff) only works about 10% of the time in the latest 365 Stable.

  19. RDP of MS Access is Excrutiatingly Slow

    I've narrowed down the issue, when the "Property Sheet" on the right is shown RDP lag time is in the seconds, hide the "Property Sheet" and it's back to full speed.

    Using latest stable Access 365. Please fix.

  20. Enable the use of functions such as Split directly queries

    Enable the use of functions such as Split directly queries

    It makes no sense to be required to make dummy function to use built-in very useful functions in a query!
