  3. Lost or forgotten SQL database password

    Have you lost or forgotten the SQL server database password? Don't worry, you can easily recover the SQL database password with a few simple and easy steps.

    SQL Server is one of the widely used and the most reliable and comprehensive database management application.

  4. Backstage Fix version 2005

    The BackStage of the latest release of Access as of 19/June/2020 appears to override the custom Backstage built via the usysribbons table. The File, New, Open, Account Tabs among others are visible even if the custom usys ribbon explicitly says not to include them. This then places our custom backstage into a nested Tab instead of being the default full screen Backstage as intended.

  5. Cambiar la altura de la fila de encabezado en un hoja de datos

    La idea es poder manipular la altura de la fila de encabezado de una hoja de datos para poder darle un alto suficiente capaz de mostrar todo el título de la columna, pero sin cambiar su anchura.

  6. Display MsgBox upon closing Access asking if user wants to repair the database before closing it.

    Access decides indiscriminately, while I am working on a VBA module in my db, to repair it and make a backup copy. This wipes out all breakpoints and bookmarks. VERY FRUSTRATING!!! This should NEVER happen while I am working on a db. At the very least, display a message asking me if I want to repair the db now and include a check box for repairing the db ONLY ON CLOSING!!! I have found no property setting that affects this. I would appreciate a response in order to fix the problem. I tend to think of this as a privacy…

  7. Bug fix requested: ControlTip text does not always show when On Mouse Move event used

    In Access 2016 the ControlTip Text may not show on a control that uses the On Mouse Move event. To see the desired ControlTip it is necessary to reveal the ControlTip of another control first, then bring the mouse back to the desired control that has the On Mouse Move event.

    A better description of the issue, with screenshots, may be found here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeaccess-msowinother-mso2013release/controltip-text-does-not-always-show-when-on-mouse/209f54d1-edfd-4252-9f20-f24029c12d8a?messageId=c1448154-918b-420e-9e2c-5d887734a505

  9. MS Updates are killing us

    In Dec... Your update wiped out our ability to query. We go through it. Last month SQL Server wouldn't query. We got through it. NOW On particular NEW MS OFFICE Installs my query is returning Gargage. I have the details with pictures. But I am recommending we shut off MS updates to both of my clients. If this "bug" is not fixed and it spreads to the whole company computers, we stop working.

    No place for me to attach the graphic details of the NEW BUG.

  10. add semantics to Hyperlink data type to allow escaped pound sign (#)

    The Hyperlink column data type uses embedded pound signs (#) to separate portions of the definition of a hyperlink. That's just great until the (all too common) moment when some portion of the hyperlink definition includes a pound sign. Access Hyperlink datatype should allow some escape character preceding a # to cause the # to be treated as any other character rather than as separating a part of the hyperlink definition.

  14. ODBC call failed in version 2007

    Version 2007 popped in this morning, with new issues not seen before. I have been working on the decimal number issue in 2005, hoping for a fix for that, but instead got an ODBC error when opening a recordset. This error is not present if I have an access backend database. I have not yet had time to dig deeper into this yet.

  15. Bug with Office update 2005 build 12827 - Decimal data type enforced in ADO recordset based on passthru query

    In my testing
    ODBC connection to Postgres v11
    Create a passthru query "SELECT COUNT(id)::INTEGER AS counter FROM foo"
    Mark query as returning records
    Open ADO recordset on above query

    Result:
    rs.Fields("counter").type = 20 ' DECIMAL ?!
    rs.Fields("counter").value = ""

    Same error with "SELECT COUNT(id)::BIGINT AS counter FROM foo"

    Current state:
    Have to revert MSO on 20+ backoffice client machines and hope that ADO will be reverted as well.

  17. Performance Analyzer needs to be resiszable and NOT modal.

    I recently started using the Performance Analyzer tool on the Database Tools Ribbon, to fix other peoples poorly designed but still quite essential work. Two major problems with it, are that the suggestions are almost always wider than the window, which has no scroll bar, and the dialog is also modal, preventing any manual investigation/repair, without closing the tool - Not very useful at all...

  18. 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.

  19. XML Export and Import of Large Number (BigInt)

    I can't complete round trip ExportXML and ImportXML of a table that contains a "Large Number" (BigInt) field. Currently, the BigInt field is stored in the XML output with an attribute:
    <xsd:restriction base="xsd:decimal">
    When the XML that was exported from Access is imported back in to Access the field type is changed to "Number" and then all values that are bigger than Number fail to import.

    When you say that you support BigInt I expect built-in functions to support it. You can test this using the export and import buttons in the GUI.

  20. Fix bug when copying ImageList ActiveX controls from one form to another

    I've noticed recently that copying ActiveX control of type MSComctlLib.ImageListCtrl.2 (Microsoft ImageList Control, version 6.0) from one form to another is buggy.

    Whenever I've attempted to copy an ImageList from one form to another recently, the object is copied but I see an error message (usually repeated twice) and the control comes in at 8cm x 5cm instead of its usual 1.005cm x 1.005cm. Any attempt to resize it results in the same error message, which usually comes up twice, presumably once for each dimension.

    Actually, even if I try resizing the original object which is the correct size of…
