  1. Invalid Use of Null - error

    I see we still have the "invalid use of Null" bug which means that the create command button on the Design tab for forms fails. First encountered this back in Access 2006 and am surprised it has not been resolved yet. Once you get this bug, there seems to be no way of resolving it without reinstalling Access and potentially recreating databases from scratch. And it has just hit me again on a database with 30 tables, 20 queries and 16 forms. Can this bug be sorted out please?

  5. Intellisense sometimes crashes the first time you try to use it in VBA code

    Every now and again, each of our developers experiences an issue where Access will crash the first time you try to use intellisense when writing VBA code.

    To get back up and running, decompiling the database always fixes the issue, but surely the editor could deal with this by suggesting the user decompiles and recompiles the code, instead of dropping out and potentially losing a lot of unsaved changes.

    Example from such a crash -

    Faulting application name: MSACCESS.EXE, version: 16.0.13029.20534, time stamp: 0x5f53f9d7
    Faulting module name: VBE7.DLL, version: 0.0.0.0, time stamp: 0x5ea725ac
    Exception code: 0xc0000005
    Fault offset: 0x000256bc
    Faulting…

  7. DatePicker should honour the textbox format property when set to a custom format

    For MS Access textboxes on Forms that handle dates you can set the textbox to allow the user to optionally use a built-in DatePicker. However the DatePicker returns the date in a format set by the Windows system (e.g. as Set by Control Panel > Region > |Formats| > [Additional Settings ...] > |Date| > Short Date:)

    If you use a unorthodox windows system date format, e.g. "yyyy-/MM-MMM/-dd, ddd" returning "2021/-05-May/-18, Wed" then this can be undesirably returned by the DatePicker.

    Instead the DatePicker should return a date that honors any custom format set by in Format property of the…

  9. form Design Tools Control formatting for labels, textfields, combobox, listbox, background

    If we want applications made with Ms access to look more modern and more Webdesign applications competitive, we need more designing tools for forms. A plugIn like now date and time, should be expanded with more standard plugins like calendar, clock, Agenda ( ms outlook), Tasks(ms Teams).

    The control formatting should be made for all the controls and not just only for buttons.

  14. make text field in form shapable

    make text fields slightly more flexible by enabling it to wrap around titles or field names, so the text field is not required to be a rectangle, the designer can take advantage of even a small space underneath or to the right of the field's title.

  16. Bring Back Form Templates

    I was disappointed to see that the form templates went away. Some of us are colorblind and need a little help when it comes to designing forms. I don't like changing all of the forms in the database with the default form option.

    If I'm missing something, please let me know.

  17. improve format options for some controls


    1. Formatting functionality (shapes/styles) for buttons replicated for textboxes, labels and rectangles, perhaps others.

    2. Option to resize and format check and option boxes

    3. The option for a line to include an arrowhead and perhaps flight. aka shapes in excel/word.

    4. The ability to map one control to another (similar to labels mapping to controls) but with the ability to choose which corner maps to which corner

  18. Maintain focus on a form when debugging

    When debugging, the form from which a process may have been launched loses focus. so to debug code behind, I need to close all other forms so I can see data changes on the form I'm debugging.

  20. Improve the Listbox Control

    Because the Listbox control doesn't support text alignment or having a different font colour and formatting per cell, it's sometimes necessary to use a ListView, which has to be programmatically filled and formatted.

    It would be a great time saver and enhancement to the ListBox if it could support left/center/right horizontal text alignment per column and the ability to apply formatting to specific "cells", perhaps using RTF code or conditional formatting.
