    Make it so selections can be made by row or column or not at all. Make it possible to modify the display format by row/column or individual cell, such as forground and background color. Add alternate row shading with selected row shading. Something like a data sheet view with the ability to double-click an entire row to make a selection and also conditional formatting options would be nice.

    Thank you for the feedback. These requests have been an ongoing discussion with the team, both internally and externally. Especially with our continuously increased focus on establishing a stronger Access-SQL experience, we do plan to have some requests on this work looked further into within the next year. We will keep you posted with specific feature designs in scope as well as timelines. In the interim, you can continue checking our public roadmap for feature updates.

    There is an issue with ODBC databases where Access doesn't generate an auto-number because the server does. If the auto-number is also the PK value, Access can't find it when reading back a new record. Because of that it has to perform a search on all fields. If there is a duplicate record except for the PK field, the wrong record can be returned on the read-back.

    Is there any way that Access can deal with this automatically? I already know of three options to deal with it myself.

    The Access team is adjusting our status for this request – we are planning to embed the Monaco Editor (support for SQL Editor improvements) into Access, to be released within the next semester (first half of 2021), which will provide capabilities such as syntax highlighting, IntelliSense, SQL comments, and more. We are excited to have this capability released by next year, and we appreciate the energy and enthusiasm on this feature request. We still have a long ways to go to improve our experience with SQL, so please stay tuned as we execute on this objective!

    Thanks,
    -Access Product Team

    Your request is already a reality. You can open multiple instances of MS Access and display different objects in each instance.
