It’s Time We Gave the Microsoft Access IDE Some Love

Quick: when  was the last time the Access Integrated Development Enviroment  (IDE) got a new feature?

I can’t remember. While Access in general has gotten love from the Access team, in particular the new data connectors, its time we add SOME kind of new feature to the IDE, but which one?:

  • Collapse procedures?
  • Improved Searching?
  • Intellisense for tables?

This month I’ll be discussing these ideas and more at our regular Access with SQL Server group meeting, to be held on Thursday February 15th, (note it will NOT be on our regular second Tuesday of the month), where I will welcome your suggestions and get the Access team to show some love to the IDE.

Please join me!
