    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's a similar suggestion for comments/formatting here that's under review, perhaps they can be merged (or if you're more worried about comments than multiple statement support, move the votes there?)

    COMMENTS! I have to keep a separate external file for any complex queries that contains the comments else I loose valuable documentation. This is a nightmare to maintain, and all that need be done is find "--" that's not part of a literal and chop the rest off for processing (I don't care about block comments - while nice, the line comments are the only ones that really kill to not have).

    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,
    Ebo [MSFT[

    Agreed. With so much being done with external, remote sources (Azure, various web services, etc), an async/callback model for VBA would be a massive help.

    I was able to cobble some functionality together here: http://www.dymeng.com/techblog/async-processing-in-access/ ... but the aritecture required to support it is a major pain.
