  1. Add Pivot Charts back to Access.

    The original Pivot tables and Pivot Charts in Access 2007 were very easy to use and a great benefit to builders and users. I am still using 2007 for that very reason, since I have many applications that rely on the pivot functionality and I am a great believer in graphical representation using Pivot Charts.

      Thanks everyone for voting and supporting this suggestion.
      As you are all aware, Pivot Charts and Pivot Tables have been removed from Access 2013 because the technology they relied on was deprecated (Office Web Components).

      Voting and commenting on this suggestion (and on this https://access.uservoice.com/forums/319956-access-desktop-application/suggestions/11510094-put-pivot-tables-back-into-access-surely-a-databa) has been very valuable to us to distill the requirements and needs.

      Since Pivot Charts as we all know them, will not come back to Access, we are updating the status accordingly and would like to encourage you to continue and use your free votes to support other suggestions.

      Thanks,
      Michal [MSFT]

    • Restore Pivot Tables to Access!

      I work at a major US airline. I have been charged with creating major database work using MS Access. Pivot tables are vital to the amount of varied data with which we work. Pivot tables are vital...please restore.

      • Buy Fishers "Find and Replace" and incorporate it into Access

        License or buy Rick Fisher's Find and Replace and incorporate it into Access. Works extremeley well. Nice extra features like linked table manager.

          Thanks for your suggestion.
          However, it is very broad and hard to understand what are the problems you are trying to solve.
          There are a few other suggestions related to Find and Replace – please vote on them or create specific suggestions for the existing functionality.

        • Improve Access Accessibility

          Improve accessibility for Microsoft Access when using Jaws and or NVDA screen reading software. I here that better support has been made for narrator, but until narrator becomes more usable for every day tasks, most people will use jaws or NVDA.

            Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
            With that, we are committed to always improve our products to help people of all abilities access information and have fulfilling interactions with our products.
            In that sense, Access is no different.
            There are multiple accessibility improvements we’ve introduced in the last year (read more https://support.office.com/en-us/article/What-s-new-in-Access-2016-76454345-f85d-47af-ace1-98a456cb3496) and we will continue to strive to improve it further.

            Feel free to suggest specific accessibility requests/features.

          • Stop randomly omitting text in reports

            Sometimes, MS Access reports silently omit lines of text. This bug exists since at least Access 2007, and it's very annoying -- customers have to manually double-check every invoice to make sure that everything important has actually been printed.

            The bug is well-known (see, for example, StackOverflow questions 10612364 and 14716048, SuperUser question 455782, MSDN thread 648dd3a2-28c1-4f0d-853c-ef932c58519f, or Microsoft Support Cases 114032111284860 and 115072312971316), but, apparently, has not been considered important enough to be fixed.

              Thanks for reporting.
              We will add this bug report to our backlog and see that it is prioritized and handled.

                • One time activation for all of Office 265. One Time filling the stupid form out. Not every time idiot software engineering!

                  Activation should only happen with the suite. NOT ALL FIVE, and when you use one of them EVERYTIME!!!!!!

                  Take some lessons from Apple. quit being such PIN HEADS!

                  • What would be very cool would be if you could talk code ... say i want a form to do xyz and it pull details together... I'm not a programme

                    i'm not a programmer and find it difficult and dont have time.. but have a lot of ideas which i want to get to work fast and when i speak with programmers they don't understand what i want etc so take a lot of hard work and time to make progress..

                      We appreciate your suggestion, however feel it is not the right place for it.
                      Access is a great tool for both developers and end-user with minimal programming/tech skills.
                      Ramp up before you are able to create something meaningful is relatively short. Give it a try!

                    • Put Pivot Tables back into Access. Surely a database should be able to analyse data, including text fields. This cannot be done in Excel.

                      Put Pivot Tables back into Access. Surely a database should be able to analyse data, including text fields. This cannot be done in Excel which can only handle numeric data. Our business uses them extensively and currently we cannot find an alternative.

                      • Enable multiple versions of Access to co-exist on the same machine.

                        Enable multiple versions of Access to co-exist, side by side, on the same machine without ill effects.
                        Just like there can be multiple versions of Visual Studio, SQL Server, etc. Currently, to work in different versions of Access we need to maintain a separate machine (physical or virtual) for each version of Access.

                          Hi Alphonse,
                          It is not clear what is the problem you are encountering. Going through the comments other Access users left here, didn’t help figure it out as well.
                          To the best of my knowledge there shouldn’t be an issue with running multiple versions of Access on the same machine, so I’m closing this request.
                          If you feel strongly about it and can provide more information, please create a new request.

                          Thanks,
                          Michal [MSFT]

                                    • Votes were not returned to me

                                      Votes were not returned to me after MS closed "Provide a native Treeview control". I had two votes for that. Since there is no feedback mechanism to tell Microsoft "your feeback site is not working, I then had to remove my vote from "Import/export specs edit feature" in order to open this "suggestion". The suggestion... Microsoft - fix your feedback mechanism.

                                        • Sell Works again. Office is too much for me and I only need what was in Works.

                                          I loved Works. I could do anything I wanted with it.
                                          I don't work in a position to use all that is in Office.
                                          In my home, Works does everything I need.
