    You can. Rename the file and also change the Project Name in VBA (Menu: Tools - YourProjectName Properties).

    I think this suggestion needs clarification. You should specify exactly which OCXs/DLLs you mean.

    We ran into the very same problem with images no longer displaying on the report. For us the problem started already after less than 10 images were displayed! - We were able to build a workaround for the problem by creating small thumbnails of the images at runtime before displaying them in the report.

    Access Applications that show multiple forms, each containing several subforms, side by side run into out-of-memory-errors very quickly. This is a completely reproducible issue. Currently the only mitigation is to limit the number of open forms. To reliably prevent the issue a max limit of no more than 5(!) forms may be required.

    We are well aware of this issue and are working with the Windows team on resolving the problem. Although we believe we have a solution to the problem, it introduces some new issues that we need to investigate and resolve before we can deploy the fix.

    Thanks,
    Access Engineering

    @Nick76: SaveAsText/LoadFromText usually do work across different versions. Old Access versions (pre 2007) used to be picky about the Version and Checksum properties in the file.
    In general, low version to higher version should work, high version to lower version might fail due to new features used in the object that are not supported in the earlier version.
    If your problems persist, I suggest you post to any QA-Forum to get this sorted. This is not the place for support discussions.

    Your understanding of OASIS-SVN and Ivercy using these methods is correct. (I'm the owner of Ivercy)

    Thank you for your feedback.

    In terms of setting SQL Server as the default database format, that is currently not in scope for the Access product. We have provided and will continue to provide efficient methods to integrate your Access data with SQL server, and the team will continue to develop more features that streamline the data migration experience (see https://support.office.com/en-us/article/migrate-an-access-database-to-sql-server-7bac0438-498a-4f53-b17b-cc22fc42c979)

    However, the ACE database engine has and will continue to be Access’s central data storage unit.

    There are new features coming soon that will improve the Access: SQL experience, and we are excited to share this news. Please stay tuned! :)
