    This is important for UWP/Fluent -like apps for Windows 10.

    Let's dump macros altogether and just use VB only. Let's make Access itself smaller.

    This would make it more efficient to add read-only documents inside forms. For example, to add a tab with an End User License Agreement (200+ words) takes a lot of labels and text boxes, quickly filling up the form and taking huge amounts of storage. It'd be better to add a single HTML page from another source.

    SVG Image support would also help in making UWP/Fluent compliant interfaces.

    I'm not sure how practical this really is, but if you go this route you might as well have Access build a Progressive Web App (PWA) that can run on anything.

    This should be a simple setting under "Current Database" in the options. Likewise, it should be easy to set the top/left corner and height/width of the form relative to the screen--not just inside the Access app.

    The Conditional Formatting in Excel is a good starting point. The UI there is a little confusing, but it's very powerful!

    This also underscores my request for UWP/Fluent controls...

    This is a good idea, but I'd be happy with at least 2-3 user-definable properties that we can use for our own purposes. Right now, I use the .tag property for this, but it's kind of a kludge.

    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! :)

    This should include supporting all SQL Server datatypes, the same SQL language, real SQL parameter support, rules, etc...

    And don't stop there: match SQL Server terminology, like Views instead of Queries. If you take this far enough, you could dump both JET and ACE. That said, we don't want a copy of SQL Server added to the package.

    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

    Why not combine the editing of everything: SQL, VBA, and Expressions in a single simplified VS-like editor?
