  1. Support Importing AIP Protected Excel/TXT files into Microsoft Access

    AIP protected Excel document and the protected extension of txt file (.pTXT) are not importable to Microsoft Access application

    Impact:

     - User not able to import/Process protected files into MS Access desktop application
    
    - MS Access macros not able to get data from protected files

    Not protecting the company’s confidential files with Azure information protection to let the users import files to MS Access is risking data exposure and unauthorized usage.

  2. Sort the image gallery by name not ID

    There was a recent discussion at a virtual user group meeting on how to export all images in the gallery, then re-import them ordered by name. Seems like a lot of to do that every time you add an image.

    It would be a lot easier if Access just sorted by name not the ID.

  3. Add an additional GetOption/SetOption option to set the Startup Form

    Sometimes we want to programmatically set the startup form and that is currently not possible.
    Please add GetOption("Display Form") and SetOption("Display form").
    I would use this feature in my "To Convention" code that fixes up bad naming convention.

  4. Incorporar la tecnología de Project Nucleus a las listas vinculadas

    Con Project Nucleus las listas se sincronizarían con una BD local con lo se podría trabajar sin conexión y se eliminarían los problemas de las listas demasiado largas. Si esto funcionara también con las listas vinculadas, Sharepoint se convertiría en un estupendo back-end para Access.

  5. Access for Mac!!

    I'm currently taking college classes while I'm in high school, and my parents got me a laptop so I could do my work on it. The problem is that I need Access to do some of my work. I don't understand how I can have Excel and Word but not Access. I would really appreciate it if y'all could make Access on Mac. Its 2020 people and I'm at home in quarantine (can't go to school and use their computers) and I need to get my work done.

  6. Create a connector for SharePoint

    Hi,

    In the menu External Data > New Data Source, there is no way to connect to an Excel file stored in a SharePoint folder.

    That's a problem because more and more companies use SharePoint and all the Excel in the SharePoint are "invisible" for Access

  9. Integrate MS Access with Power Apps

    I've been looking more into Power Apps, and I think it would be great for you to work with the Power Apps team to provide a web and mobile solution to what Access can do today on the premises of a server. Because there is unfortunately no web version of Access, maybe Power Apps can help solve this problem? Ideally, we should be able to continue moving (and linking) Access data into SQL and then create a Power App on top of the "Access-created" data from SQL; essentially viewing a Power Application that looks exactly like access but online and…

    This is great feedback that we are actually working on providing now. Using the comments below, we’d love to hear thoughts about solely focusing on SQL as a stepping stone to Power Apps for data migration purposes, or also investing in another way for you to connect to Power Apps through the Common Data Service (CDS). This database allows you to store, share and manage your data over the web, and eventually the phone (current MS investment). CDS is also Power Apps’ central underlying storage unit, as well as the entire Power Platform team’s key investment.
    Please see following link for information about CDS, and let us know: if Access created a data export & linked table capability from our platform to CDS, would you use it?:
    https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdocs.microsoft.com%2Fen-us%2Fpowerapps%2Fmaker%2Fcommon-data-service%2Fdata-platform-intro&data=04%7C01%7CEbo.Quansah%40microsoft.com%7C32c26c86b7fe4f3162a508d7f069896d%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1%7C0%7C637242208373640123%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C-1&sdata=GuvQ6o2aqKiBMs%2B1z2nvv0sNtAHNl8MPQqiOvsh0D1U%3D&reserved=0

    We will still continue to make investments in SQL connection either way, but we are also happy to…

  10. FIX This JET SQL Syntax error

    ALTER TABLE [tFIL@CTL] ADD COLUMN [LasttMVSKUUpdate] DATETIME NOT NULL DEFAULT #04-01-2021 00:00:00#;

    Syntax error

    This should NOT be a syntax error - and it is at present, solely because JET/Ace parser won't correctly parse the value of a DEFAULT constrain from within Access itself....but it might work if you do the very same command via an ADODB Command!?? What sense does this make??.

  12. Make the predefined templates more flexible for users

    I currently cannot add a column to a predefined template in Access. This makes the template unusable to me, and I only need to add one more column.

    There is no "Click to add" option available. Be great if there was!

    It would also be useful if it states in the online Help that this is the case; predefined templates cannot be edited. I spent a long time trying to solve this but it was only through online chat support where I eventually found out that adding a column was not possible.

  13. Fix System Resource Exceeded error with large files

    Ever since we upgraded to the latest Windows 10 version and MS 2019 version, our previously working update queries for ~100,000 records are failing and throwing the System Resource Exceeded error! This is unacceptable.

    The issue is reproducible on multiple computers with the latest upgrade and working on the non-upgraded computers. Many users are suffering from this issue as you can see here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/access/system-resources-exceeded-error/m-p/1791077

  15. Increase Accdb file size capacity

    2 GB size storage capacity, could be enough for maybe more than 5 years that if small growth of data entry, but for thousands of data could be entries in just 1 year it would be a fear to reach it's limit. For me i don't need 10 GB but maybe 4 GB could be better than what we have today.

  18. Linked Table Manager enhancement - Trigger events

    I understand the Linked Table Manager enhancements are on the MS Dev Team's agenda.
    I'd like to suggest that the enhanced Linked Table Manager expose a COM interface with EVENTS that a VBA app can detect and respond to.
    This could be of benefit to All Apps in an SDLC sense (we can query the tabledefs to connection info already, but can't detect when they are changed via the LTM or otherwise), and can allow some apps to react to protect the security or integrity of their data/connections.

    If the Linked Table Manager could expose events like:

    LTM Start

  20. 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?
