    • bring it into conformance with high DPI design standards

      Need to clean up all the UI to scale properly on high DPI displays. E.g., Navigation pane vertical object spacing, low res navigation pane object and navigation (expand/contract) icons, and "Save changes to the following objects" dialog box.

      (Hate to spend precious votes on what is basically a set of defects, but there it is.)

      • Include Access runtime in editions of Office which have click-to-run which stops installation of most up-to-date version of runtime.

        When a PC has an edition of Office 365 installed which does not have the full edition of Access included, e.g. all the Business editions and the basic E1 enterprise edition, it is not possible to install the current version of the runtime as well since the Access runtime is an MSI installation and Office 365 is click-to-run. See https://blogs.office.com/2015/12/16/access-2016-runtime-is-now-available-for-download/ for more details.
        If Microsoft do any serious development on Access (let's call it Access 2019), it means we cannot install the Access 2019 runtime and will be stuck with the Access 2016 runtime (or earlier), thereby missing out on…

          • Fix The Runtime Versions Of Access 2010 And Above To Not Show The Home Tab At Startup

            When Access 2007 Runtime opens a password protected database the only thing on the Ribbon is the Access button (Backstage) while the user is prompted for the password.

            When Access 2010 and above Runtime opens a password protected database the Home tab is shown in addition to the File (Backstage) button while the user is prompted for the password.

            We have an application where the custom Ribbon only contains the File button for printing. It is confusing to the user to see the Home tab while entering the database password.

            • Office 2016 / ODBC - Problem with drivers in Access files - Please confirm if this is By Design

              Customer has a HRD application connects to Access DB. After installing ODBC 2016 or Office 2016 (which includes ODBC), the awards in Logbook ceases to work and reports only zeros. Customer has a workaround for now:

              Fix: An automatic workaround will be put into HRD.
              Workaround:
              Modify the registry to use the new (old) strings.
              1. Pull up regedit and go to HKCU\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources
              2. Note the “Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)”. That was added partially in 2007 and fully in 2010. Some older entries may have the old style string already.
              3. Change them back to the original…

                Thanks for calling out this issue Subhabrata.
                We are investigating this issue.

                @Mark Burns – this is a different issue that we are looking into as well. Please post as a separate suggestion so people can vote on it and we can address.
