  1. Enhance the SQL Editor

    Some features would be good to developers:
    1) Tabbed SQL Query Windows - allow user to create a query window without binding to a query object (like we do in SQL Server)

    2) Format the query field with highlighting, identation, colors and make possible to even resize the font size. .

    3) Allow intellisense to get [table].[field] list (in A2013 we have it in Query Designer but no in SQL mode)

    4) Split the window in SQL Query and result pane - and make it possible to see result in table or text format (like we have in SQL Server).…

    The Access team is adjusting our status for this request – we are planning to embed the Monaco Editor (support for SQL Editor improvements) into Access, to be released within the next semester (first half of 2021), which will provide capabilities such as syntax highlighting, IntelliSense, SQL comments, and more. We are excited to have this capability released by next year, and we appreciate the energy and enthusiasm on this feature request. We still have a long ways to go to improve our experience with SQL, so please stay tuned as we execute on this objective!
