    maybe this should be combined with http://access.uservoice.com/forums/319956-access-desktop/suggestions/10743747-improve-the-built-in-date-picker

    Personally I would prefer spinner controls for data and time rather than comboboxes.

    Converting to ACCDE gives you most of that. But I would agree to including Design view of Tables and Queries being included when converting to an ACCDE.

    While this functionality can be reproduced by a User Defined Function of which there are many samples out there, it would be nice to have this integrated into the the Group BY query.

    Frankly, I think this idea is a waste of resources. The main purpose of the accdr is to force a full licensed version of Access to run as if it were in Runtime mode. As such, it is primarily a tool for developers to use to test apps.

    There are some advantages to deploying an app as accdr. But in those cases the accdr would be created as an accde first. An accdr is created by using the file rename function. When one is created an accde one simply needs to change the name to accdr and the accde is saved as accdr. So what Michelle wants to accomplish is very doable with the process that currently exists.

    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! :)
