  3. Why not define a Ctrl-". This would fill a field with one date higher than the field above it.

    I do a fair amount of data entry that involves date data into a database table. I can use the Ctrl-' function to add to the field the data in the same field directly above it. This is great. But I have to enter a lot of records with dates, and the new record is for a different date, usually the next date on the calendar. So if there was a function Ctrl-", I would be able to directly add the next day to this record when compared to the record above it. For example if Record 12 has a…

  7. For starters, could you have feedback on the latest edge and not IE 11. I would like for Word or Outlook to have a different colour icon.

    For starters, could you have feedback on the latest edge and not IE 11. I would like for Word or Outlook to have a different coloured icon. They are both on my taskbar and it's annoying when you look down quickly and think you are choosing one when you choose the other. All the other colours make quick selection easy, but 2 blues?

  11. Allow contact info to be changed. It is tied to location, but we have a different point of contact

    In the contact info box, we cannot change the default name to our local contact. The name that populates is a person that does not work in this facility.

  12. Enable us to lock the tab we're working on within a Tab Control

    Working on controls within a Tab Control can be very frustrating. You can't drag a box around controls, because you end up moving the Tab Control containing them and I'm forever accidentally selecting the Tab Control.

    Can we have some way of locking us on to the selected tab, locking the Tab Control's position and allowing us to drag a box around controls on a Tab Control?

  14. Datasheet enhancements

    Please increase the size of the footer of the data sheet to make it easier to see and use the record controls. The number of records box should be much bigger to see large record numbers. Also, the search box should be at the top of the datasheet to make it more intuitive to use and be inline with the emphasis Microsoft now gives search in all its applications. I would like to see wrappable columns heading. And the filter button, the add button and a delete and refresh button at the upper right hand part of the datasheet so…

  15. Include Find/Replace dialogue when using Shift F2 to edit code

    I use code for the recordset property of a form and if I need to make changes I cut and paste to notepad but now we have "find & replace" in the SQL Editor. Can this functionality be incuded if editing the recordsource property or perhaps open the sql editor to make this easier.

    Thanks for the great work on the Editor it really helps!

  16. BUG - Relationship window: Cannot view all tables

    Office 365, 16.0.12730.20144 32-bit.

    Select many tables at once in Relationship window - enough so that the list of tables spills over to a second set of columns. Scroll down to bottom of scroll bar, and cannot see the tables lower down. If I then resize the Access Window so it is shorter, I can scroll down and see more tables. And then if I make the Window taller again, I can see the bottom tables. But as soon as I touch the vertical scrollbar, focus shifts to the top again, and the bottom tables are again not showing.

    Note…

  17. Use F5 to run a query

    When switching between SQL Management Studio and an Access front end I find myself pressing F5 to run the Access query as I've been working in the other window - would be good if F5 ran the query in Access as it does in SQLMS

  18. Hello! I would like to see boundries with dashed lines as an option.

    My congregation is use to seeing dashed line boundaries to mean just doing one side of a street. With that feature, you can pick one part of the boundary or the entire outer boundary to have a dashed line. Would be a nice feature to have.

  20. 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.
