List of limitations and missing functions :(
we would like to have following limitations to be lift from upcoming versions:
1>Tabs within tabs should be possible
2> passthrough query's connection string limited to 255 char can you lift that too so we can add long SSL certificate locations?
1> Global Error capturing especially odbc errors like lost connections
2> Resizing form & resize components.
3> Can tabs have an option whether its contents are loaded upon entering tab.
4> Allow CSS formatting for forms or any global style sheet. Or at least allow us to create more sections in the (theme colors)
5> allow developers to compile with "no navigation pane, no bypassing shift key" (don't allow to enable without the original project.)
6> Drag and Drop function at least in list box.
7> ability to lock down tables/items being imported from other OLE apps. (preferably with an encrypted password)
> Visual ribbon creator
> object view for code module to see functions, procedures.
2> Menu that can be placed anywhere
3> Right click menu that can be placed on a section(header/detail/footer).
4> Proper date picker
5> Group box (no activex please)
6> better charts
Thanks Krish for taking the time to share these ideas.
The team reviewed the asks and most of them have been added to the active backlog. However, it will take a while before we get to all of them (@Joe – 2027? are you joining the team to help? ;-))
For future suggestions, we recommend that you break them up into separate items. It will help other supporters as well as the team.

@Alan, yes I know and i paid £105 for that component while MS Access 2016 itself cost £109 and i think this function should be available free to everyone.

For global error handling have a look at vbWatchdog by EverythingAccess.com.
All of this should be available in Access 2027
