Datasheet Column Header Formatting
Currently (Access/Office 1706), the only formatting capability for column headers in datasheet view is with the DatasheetColumnHeaderUnderlineStyle property, and this only seems to work for value 8 (Double Solid). It would be great if some extra capabilities could be added:
1. Set HeaderHeight (absolute or relative to normal row height, f.i. twice normal).
2. Options to wrap & align text within Header.
3. Set Background color / Font bold & color.
Of course more comprehensive header formatting is imaginable, but these basics would already be a great improvement.

@uservoice moderator or dev team: How can I flag this item so that is also appears in the Datasheet category?
Yes. This is the ultimate user experience. To enable control over header height. In many cases the meaningful descriptive label may be long but very important. Instead of allowing only one line, enable 2 or 3 header lines at the Datasheet design (table or query).
By the way, Microsoft Dynamics NAV do have this option, and it is great.

This would be a great addition instead of what I currently do which is putting a label above it with all that column names, but doesn't really work now for me due to DPI issues ect.
