Access needs a native control that accepts a string and outputs it as a barcode displayed on a Form or Report.
The most commonly used barcodes these days are:
reason for request: there is no easy way to generate barcodes, especially 2D ones with pure VBA without having to reference external OCX/DLL libraries.
Office (Access, Word, Excel) needs a built in barcode control.95 votes
Hi Piotr, and barcode supporters,
It would be good to hear more about what you’d expect from a native barcode control -
what formats are mostly used? what are other requirements for barcode support?
The only way to make a tabbed form have a colour is to resort to some trick like using a coloured background behind a transparent tab or pasting an image onto it. These cause problems when moving controls around.
It would be nice for the tab control to have the same functionality as a form where one can set the background colour.41 votes

We are not quite sure we fully understand the suggestion here.
Could you elaborate and provide more details?

Thanks Brent for posting.
Please provide more information about the scenario you’d like to accomplish and impact on business/customers.
There are several controls that always in the foreground (eg. Speed, Slider, ..) appear and other controls can not be covered). This is very disturbing when programming.3 votes
Thanks for your suggestion.
Please provide more information about your request.
Also note there is (maybe) a similar request here https://access.uservoice.com/forums/319956-access-desktop/suggestions/10207788-provide-these-3-basic-native-controls-slider-spi – if it is indeed the same, please let us know and we’ll combine the two.
When using the tabbed interface, if you switch a form out of Form view to Design view, the interface changes to the next tab in the sequence. You have to manually re-select the tab you were working on each time, which is really annoying. This bug affects all versions that support the tabbed interface, from what I have observed.4 votes
With the latest version of Access, we are not able to reproduce the issue you are describing.
If you still experience problems with the tabbed interface please provide information about the version you are using, and steps to reproduce.
