  1. Display the control reference

    From the many times problems with determining how a control should be referenced appear on a google search, I think it would be useful if a right click of a control object provided how it should be refenced by a query, form or report external to the object in which it resides.

  6. Bug - Tab Control Use Theme CPU/power drain in Design View

    When in Design View on a form with a tab control, if I change the tab control's 'Use Theme' flag to Yes, then that Access process increases CPU usage by 30% and power usage (as shown in Task Mgr) for the process goes from "Very low" to "Very high" - and it stays there. If I save the form and then design it again, the CPU/Power stays normal. But if I change the Use Theme back to No and then to Yes, the CPU/Power goes up again (while in Design View). And, if I try to close the form after…

  7. Query Editor - Make it smarter for INSERT INTO queries

    Currently, if an existing INSERT INTO query has a problem with an underlying query (if there is an error due to a renamed supporting query or table name, for example), the Query Editor inserts new "phantom alias names" into the QueryDef for each column.
    So, the resulting SQL looks sort of like this:
    INSERT INTO MyTable (ColA, ColB, ColC...)
    SELECT MyDerivedColA as Expr1, MyColB as Expr2, MyDerivedColC as Expr3…
    FROM (from clause with some underlying table/query naming error here)...

    My request is that since the Query editor is "smart enough" to introduce those "Expr#" Alias labels when needed due to…

  8. Fix the issue of Access returning an incorrect record ID when a bound form is connected to a SQL Server table that has an insert trigger

    Access returns an incorrect record ID when a form is bound to an SQL Server table that has an 'insert trigger' that inserts a record into 'another' table. The record ID returned is actually the record ID of the trigger inserted record into the 'other' table. This is because Access calls SQL Server for @@IDENTITY rather than SCOPE_IDENTITY() when inserting a new record. This particularly affects SQL Server tables that are 'replicated' as these tables have an MS shipped 'insert trigger' on the table for use in replication. We have an MS Support Case # 23043471 where we have had…

  9. Access fouoMac

    Há tempos atrás eu adorava utilizar o Access para fazer pequenos trabalhos em banco de dados. Contudo, nos idos de 2002 passei a ser usuário de Imac e não trabalho mais em PCs. Não consigo entender o motivo de vcs não disponibilizarem tal tecnologia Access para gente como eu.

  11. PIVOT TABLE VIEW SHOULD BE BRING BACK AS IT SERVES A LOT IN ANALYSIS

    SIR,

    Actually i am working in delhi police department and at local level we maintain data on crime of our district by making small software with many constraints during entry.

      as we have ..you can say constable who dont know computer at all). (at first i taught them basic computer then they get able to feed data as required.). I have made small software in access and  they feed data on regular basis regarding crime.
    

    thereafter through pivot we analyse very easily.

  15. Access 365 runtime bug

    Since the office update 2019 version 2009 (build 13231.20262) it is impossible for my users to open a program with Access 365 32-bit runtime, there is a message like "the database was unrecognized format ..."

    P.S. if I compile my program on another computer with an earlier version, everything works.
    Any solution otherwise an Office roolback version?

  16. Provide an Option to Disable the Add Tables Palette

    The 'Add Tables' palette is redundant as tables & queries may be added to a query by dragging them from the Navigation Pane.

    The Add Tables palette is displayed every time a new query is created and it would be useful to be able to disable it completely.
