Someone needs to be fired (really)
The recent Access updates that broke the most simple update queries was bad. However, Microsoft's response was even worse. Rather than Microsoft fixing the very serious problem they created, they said we should change the way we update records in our applications. What moron thought that was an appropriate response? Like many other throughout the world, we have a production system with 400K lines of code and you want us to rewrite every update statement because you do not want to roll out a bug fix? Then, someone thought it was a good idea to wait 30 days to fix the problem. What are people to do in the meantime? These are production systems that people rely on every day to do their jobs! Again, what tone-deaf moron at Microsoft thought this was an acceptable response? Clearly someone needs to be fired.
For updates, this is fixed for almost all channels now (a fix has been available for most users since 11/18).
The damage has already been done. We and everybody else in the world had to come up with plan that assumed it would not be fixed until when you originally said it would be fixed. No gold stars for fixing it sooner.
