    • Protect data

      It needs to be more difficult to accidentally delete data in the database. I don't know how you do this, but all I know is Access automatically saves changes even when I don't want it to. If I accidentally delete something, it's gone forever.

      • Analyze Performance in Access 2019 is messed up visually

        Analyze Performance windows is not messed up visually, but it works fine. It just need to be formatted properly.
        Thank you.

          • Build an integration for Zapier

            https://zapier.com/apps/microsoft-access/integrations

            The above link has the option for a developer from the Access team to log in to the Developer Platform on Zapier to build an integration. Access is a vital part of running the backend of our law firm but we use a different platform for our frontend. It would be much quicker and more efficient if we were able to sync data from our frontend to our backend.

            • Add sorting and grouping to multiple-item forms

              Add sorting and grouping to multiple-item forms, working in the same way as found in reports. You'll probably need to prevent the addition of editable/save-able fields in the group headers and footers though (maybe force them to Enable=false and/or Locked=true).

              • Change the coordinate system for the Relationships diagrams to allow an (almost) unlimited canvas size

                I'd like to suggest changing the coordinate system for the Relationships diagram, so that tables are plotted onto the canvas in relation to the centre of the canvas. The centre would be coordinate 0,0pixels, marked with a small cross-hair. An item placed at 122,344pixels would be in the upper-right of the canvas, whereas an item placed at -455,-677pixels would be in the bottom-left.

                This would allow the Relationships canvas to have an (almost) unlimited size, on top of which, a better zoom, scroll and print system could be built.

                For backward compatibility with earlier versions of Access, existing Relationship diagrams…

                • ITEMS in Detail Section with Crosstab Queries and specified fixed headings should have option to suppress repeating

                  Whenever an ITEM such as a heading progress bar is in the Detail section, so if you display the form as Continuous Forms, you will see a progress bar in each displayed record. It will happen whenever a Continuous Form displays more than one record.

                  The only way to avoid this is to move the progress bar to the form header (or footer) section.

                  Please refer to the attached design, on the very last page described in microsoft forums.

                  https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msoffice_access-mso_windows8-mso_2010/crosstab-query-to-display-all-records-according-to/b98b9372-1a83-402d-b54d-87ca5b7a7407?messageId=c8966d76-2bcd-4a49-a1cc-83cdcf71a483

                  Either an access development enhancement to enable this would provide more flexibility to create complicated reports.

                  Thank you kindly.

                    • Add nore functionality to the tabluar arrangement in forms and reports.

                      In forms and reports, the tabular arrangement of controls and their labels is very limited. In reports, it is not possible to have the headers placed in group headers on the report. Cutting and pasting the labels into other than page headers removes the ability to coordinate the size of the label and the control.
                      Please add the ability to select the location of the labels and controls when creating a tabular arrangement

                            -add window pinning for forms and reports to pin the object at a certain location on screen and apply a width / height percentage for the object (technically possible already but a cleaner option should be provided)
                            -a built in custom ribbon editor

                                  • Pin Favorites to Top of Access Navigation Sidebar

                                    In each of the project i have some most used forms and queries, which i use often. It would be great to have ability to pin them on the top of sidebar, like in outlook does with folders. That could save lot of time with searching and scrolling, specialy if there is a 50+objects in the pane.

                                    • Bug in Access build 11029.20108 -Access Application crash

                                      I have been able to replicate an error where a form containing only one object - a subform - and no form procedures at all for both the parent and child can crash without warning.

                                      The situation is that the above mentioned form is a search result screen displaying records that match the criteria built in a different form, a search form.

                                      The results form is opened - hidden - the recordsourcethen altered to match the search criteria and a recordset clone is then used to count the records - if the the record count is greater than 1 then…

                                      • Bug in Access build 11029.20108 -Memory crash

                                        I have a screen shot of the error message if someone can point me in the direction of someone who cares. The crash happens when I had the MS Access Menu open and Windows alerted me to a restart pending. I accepted the restart only to be prompted with an Error - The instruction at 0x0000000077BBEB85 referenced memory at 0x00000000000000060. The The memory could not be written.

                                        The error title was Access:MSACCESS.EXE - Application Error

                                        click ok to terminate the program

                                        • conditional formating rules on controls

                                          Add the ability to set border color and thickness and line type. Also allow conditional formatting for checkboxes - Would be nice to not have to do this all in code.
