  1. Botones + (mostrar) y - (ocultar) en las secciones de la Vista Informes

    En la Vista informes de un informe con grupos, podemos ir a un determinado grupo y filtrar por no coincidentes con respecto al campo por el que se agrupa.

    Si este comportamiento lo consiguiéramos con un botón para mostrar u ocultar ese item del grupo, la Vista Informes tendría la funcionalidad de un TreeView

  2. Stop resizing Report and Form Labels in Design View, when editing the label's text.

    I see this in both Forms and Reports, but it's more irritating in Report Design as the labels are more likely to have visible borders. Sometimes a report gets copied and repurposed to a similar task or the definition of a data set gets updated. When you edit the text in an existing label, the border automatically collapses around the new text, making it look ugly and poorly aligned to the other neatly arranged labels on the Report/Form. I don't care if it clips, I'll resize the font from the ribbon. I don't care if it leaves extra space -…

  3. Add data tables to modern charts in MS Access

    In classic charts and/or Excel you can show the data table for the related chart underneath. Need to add that functionality to the new Modern Charts in Access. I have some classic charts that do this already but the development time using that outdated Active X control is frustrating.

  4. Modernize the Chart Objects and Graphics for Higher Resolution Displays

    Modernize the Chart objects and modernize all graphics to be better suited for anchoring and auto-resizing to higher display resolutions without data and charts getting cutt-off after a certain pixel width limitation like today.

  5. Flexibility on Resizing/Formatting Data Tables Independently for Charts

    Need to allow to resize and format Data Tables independently from the Chart Object to be able to keep large series charts (15+) from stretching too long vertically just to show all the data table results.

  6. Conditional Formatting - nulls and automatic backcolor

    Two things for Conditional Formatting: (1) Add options for Field Value is null/not null. Doesn't work if I say Field Value Is equal to Null, instead I switch to Expression and type it out. (2) Background color needs a "transparent" or "no color" option. Example- I have a report with alternate row colors and want to highlight a field with solid yellow for certain conditions and make it clear for others... using the "Automatic" background color makes the field solid white instead of whatever the alternate row color is.

  8. Access Chart Add Features

    There seem to be several things missing in the new "modern" charts in Access. A couple of things I have run into include:


    • The gridlines don't seem to work, nor can I find a property to set their color

    • There doesn't seem to be a place to set the desired color for each bar of a graph

    • There doesn't seem to be a way to modify the sort order (or any of the SQL) of the "Transformed Row Source", for example to sort the categories by descending value

    • Can't find settings to vary the tick marks etc.

    Maybe I'm missing…

  9. Labels printing blank from Report Preview

    I have an issue that happens from time to time at my current job. I can see the report label in the preview option however it prints blank labels for some odd reason. The report preview looks fine but the result is blank labels. I'm using a Zebra 410 printer and the labels are 1" margins. I already tried to reproduce the issue by changing the margins but it prints fine. Not able to reproduce the issue as of this moment. Looking for any pointers or suggestions.

  10. Un petit bug dans le reporting Access

    I think there is a small bug in Access Reports…
    When a report contains a png or embedded image, this is not printed if you print it directly on the printer. If I create a Pdf, and then print the pdf report, the logo is visible.

  11. Have a box to check to not use client ID's on reports

    We are a small firm. We do not use client ID's for anything. You should have a feature, or box to check, for small firms that don't use IDs to check so that we do not see them on any reports that print. It looks terrible to see a client ID that was created for a client on a report that will never ever be used. You should have the box on the Primary Contact screen to suppress IDs when creating new clients OR a box when running due date reports to run to mark x to not see/use the…

  13. Enable reports to display whole pdf-files that are saved as attachments in tables.

    Currently, when using the attachment saving method, you can only display images in reports. When you try to display a pdf file, you will only see the thumbnail of a generic pdf file.

  16. enable a custom sort order in reports/queries

    I have a report which sorts on the sort field alphabetically, but I do not want this. I need to define that the following sort is carried out but I can only sort in an ascending or descending order without adding a lookup to another table or altering my item names containing the following:

    In progress
    Not started
    Ongoing
    Waiting for someone else

    If I sort alphabetically they end up as

    In Progress
    Ongoing
    Not Started
    Waiting for someone else.

    Not started is more important to me than ongoing, so I would like it to appear before Ongoing, but the…

  17. BugFix: Report Printing to PDF in Domain Environment

    Sort out the crashing problem with Printing reports to Microsoft PDF Printer when in a domain environment.

    Access opens a report and when you try to automate the printing process to Microsoft PDF Writer it crashes intermittantly. It crashes with an MSACCESS application error event but I believe it to be related to Microsoft Print Spooler.

    Printing to hardware printers first seem to be ok, but printing to PDF or XPS first create problems when on a domain. Zero issues with same code on same OS and Office versions when in a workgroup or when the domain computer is unplugged…

  18. Improve Access charting, or improve the interaction with Excel

    I have a need to place a fairly complex chart in an Access report, and I wasn't able to create the chart in Access so I did it with Excel. The data actually resides in SQL Server, and there is a data connection that runs a stored procedure to bring it into Excel. This works find if you manually refresh the data in Excel, get the chart to refresh in Excel (which doesn't seem to work as easily as it should), and save the spreadsheet. If you then run the report the linked chart will work correctly. But when you…

  19. label alignment (particularly checkboxes)

    Please could you add non-VBA functionality to reports to enable us to choose where a label (particularly checkboxes) is positioned?

    I amconstantly frustrated at having to manually move the checkbox to the right of the label because it defaults to the opposite way to every other label!

    I note that Checkbox Alignment is being reviewed for future consideration (https://access.uservoice.com/forums/319956-access-desktop-application/suggestions/10129926-checkbox-alignment) but the wording doesn't mention my suggestion above and I hope it can be incorporated.

    Thank you
