  1. When a datasheet is filtered, the download button should respect the filter.

    If a user has selected the rows that they are interested in by means of the filters on the datasheet they will expect that the download will deliver a spreadsheet with those rows. Instead they are getting the full list of records and must repeat the filter in excel.

  2. Drag a datasheet to Excel

    Instead of manual ctl-A, Ctl-c, open excel, new worksheet, ctl-v.

  3. Allow Object Model Manipulation of the ctl.Filter.ValueList.RowSource in a Form Datasheet

    The Filter Value List in datasheets is set to scan the full recordset's field to display a unique list. This takes time and i/o in a pure .accdb recordsource and worse, will not work if the recordset is based directly on an ODBC attached source.

    Many Filter Value Lists are sourced from fields which are foreign keys to look up tables - we could intervene by feeding the look up table as source for the Filter Value List.

  4. Increase the size of the record display in datasheet view footer

    Right now the size is not big enough in many cases depending on the number of records. Since datasheets are usually wide anyway, this can be easily increased.

  5. Allow disable of filter icon on datasheet at the bottom.

    On many forms I create, I include filtering fields at the top of the form, a filter and clear filter button and the datasheet below. If the user unclicks the filter on the datasheet, this causes issues as the filtering on the form above is not cleared at the same time because the main form does not know about the "unfiltering" below. If the datasheet view had a property that controlled the "filtered" button option. If disabled, just show the word filtered if it has been but not clickable.
