    I've recently noticed that this has been implemented. I'm writing an interface to an accounting applicaiton that does use ' Name' and 'Date' as column names and when I tried to create columns in a local table with these names I got a warning -

    NICE, thank you Access Dev Team

    When I Create a Continuous Form or Report from scratch, I
    • add the controls from Add Existing Fields.
    • Then run some code to apply LNC prefixes to the boxes and labels.
    • Then cut the labels and paste them into the header section.
    at this point the labels are no longer associated and cannot be because they are in a different section.

    It would be great if
    a) we could keep them associated even if they are not in the same section. ie allow them to be moved to another section without dragging the parent control along.
    b) had an option to not automatically resize labels when we manually change their captions.

    @Mark FYI: The Access team are not responsible for the VBE. VBA is common to all of Office.

    There is an option for this. You can find this in
    Access Options > Object Designers > Form/Report design view > Always use event procedures

    And while we are talking about labels, the new feature which shows the name of the associated label in the text/combo/chk etc box properties. Like it's not already obvious.

    Why did you waste time on this pointless feature when you could have better spent time on allowing the label to be in a different section of the form while still being associated?

    Like in a continuous form where you have the labels in the header but you can't associate them with a control in the detail section. That would have been useful and as for auto resizing - automatically setting the labels width and left properties to match the control in the detail section would be useful.

    OK, so who, in the Access dev team, decided that it would be a good idea to resize labels when you change the caption?

    Why would you waste precious development time on such a poorly thought out change to the way Access works when it was just fine the way it was?

    Change it back.

    Left over from an issue with lines many years ago ( I vaguely recall there was a memory leak?), I learned to use rectangles instead. I still use rectangles unless the line needs to be at an angle.

    This is just one of the many suggestions pertaining to Excel/Access connectivity. Probably should merge these all into one suggestion to review linking/importing/exporting to Excel.

    Like you did with SharePoint Lists.

    Please correct me if I am wrong but it appears to me that the Rich Text in Access is proper html and the issue is more with Excel not being able to display this, or even Access Web Apps for that matter.

    You can use the PlainText() function to strip the html tags when exporting.

    With the latest version of Access, we are not able to reproduce the issue you are describing.
    If you still experience problems with the tabbed interface please provide information about the version you are using, and steps to reproduce.

    Thanks,
    Access Engineering

    Even in form view, I find that I need to close all other forms if I want to watch the data change in the application window as I step through code in another window.

    Despite the warning, you can put a subform in the Footer of a continuous form.
    Just not in the detail section so you can only see the children of the current record.
