  2. Add Tables Task Pane scroll wheel should scroll the list

    Update the Add Tables Task Pane so if you've clicked into the list and scroll the mouse wheel it scrolls the list. Even better if the mouse is over the list and you scroll the wheel it should scroll the list.

    Also arrow keys should allow you to move up and down on the list after you've click on an entry in the list.

  3. Decimal data types and Calculated fields in DAO.recordset (build 16.0.12827.20152)

    Anyone having problems with DAO.Recordsets and calculated fields in the latest Insider update (16.0.12827)

    So long I found:


    • When accessing a table field with "Decimal" data type, recordset returns empty string... Changing the data type to double fixes the issue


    • When accessing a query calculated field (sum) the DAO.Recordset returns empty string... Adding the CDbl to the query field fixes the issue.

  11. Querydef as source for subform

    We have no way to use querydef as subform soure
    Problem
    Option 1 use ado - disadvantage - no master child
    Option 2 - linked table - disadvantage - no server side filter, can bring millions of records to client - stupid and ineffective
    Suggest
    Option 3 - querydef as standard snapshot recordset for all forms and subforms and server side filter
    You are 15 years behind.

  13. Support LongLong - or BIGINT - natively in Access 365 just like Excel 365.

    BIGINT needs to be turned on in Access 365 and 2016. LongLong (2^64) - 1 is simply another data type available natively in Excel 365. This should be available in 64-bit versions of all Office applications VBA as well as the tables in Access.

  15. Allow hyperlinks in MS Access to open a shared file on SharePoint

    Currently, hyperlinks in MS Access to a shared file on SharePoint does not open. One gets the error = "Unable to open <link>. Cannot download the information you requested". If it is a hyperlink to a normal website (e.g. www....) it does work. This error applies to both data in hyperlink-formatted fields as well as hyperlinks embedded in form controls. Access simply cannot access data in SharePoint via URL. This is a major deficiency in the program and should be solved.

  16. State of the Art Replacement for Active X MS Calendar

    Everything revolves around time and Microsoft Active X Calendar is(was?) the perfect tool to use in a lot of applications we've prepared over the years. This gem works seamlessly even in continuous forms while current datepickers associated with textboxes won't do and subforms won't do and equally seamlessly integrates with VBA code and queries and control sources SQL. It doesn't work in Access 64 bit so it's about time to come up with a state-of-the-art replacement but even simply enabling it for 64 bit would suffice.

  17. add Option Application.UNLoadCustomUI

    Situation:
    We have linked database to SQL database
    users can choose what database the connect - they are all same schema
    We use VBA tebledef to change all Linked Tables to a Database
    this is our only alternative to Old Good ADP!!!

    for each database - as an AD user - you may have different permissions for the new database
    based on that we load ribbon from xml in the loaded SQL database And using the callback in VBA we make each TAB in the ribbon Visible or not.

    we need an option to simply mimic the Application.LoadCustomUI

    and have…
