  1. Linked Tables, Caching and Offline Database Sync

    Hello,

    I think some of us are badly missing the great feature that we were using with Access database connected to SharePoint lists, the feature that allow users to work offline and reconnect/sync the data when they are online.

    I would suggest to bring this feature back for the link tables and add an option under Current Database (Access options) to turn on this feature to turn on and cache / sync for link tables. For-example if we have Azure SQL in the cloud and created an application that requires the field people to work offline or any other factors…

  2. Provide ability to change Sort Order and Column Size for Continuous Forms

    continous Forms and Datasheet View have both andvantages and disadvantages. It would be great to have one View with the best of both. If you dont provide a Grid-Control, please enhance the continous Forms ability for the most important features.

  3. Triple Click to select entire Cell's (field) content

    When triple clicking a "cell" (field's content) Access should highlight the entire content, so we can copy/cut/delete it without having to manually use Ctrl A or dragging manually from the start until the end of the content of the field.

    It's a feature that works across multiple applications (triple click selects entire cells or entire lines depending where you use it) and it's a huge time saver.

  4. Maps

    Excel now has good functionality for plotting data on maps. Crystal Reports has had it for years. Can we have this functionality in Access?
    In general the charting function doesn't seem to have had much time spent on it compared with Excel and yet it is surely as important

  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?:

  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 DATE literal value of a DEFAULT constraint from within Access(DAO/JET SQL) itself....but it might work if you do the very same command via an ADODB Command!?? What sense does this make??

    This same ALTER TABLE statement WILL work (in DAO/JET SQL) if the value is a Numeric or Text value - it only blow up with DATE values. This…

  11. 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. 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.

  16. 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
    LTM…

  18. 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?
