From the article: Microsoft Access 2010: What's Coming with Office 2010?
Microsoft announced yesterday that the next release of the Office suite will occur in 2010. News out of Redmond indicates that this release will place a heavy emphasis on web services. So far, there aren't any specific details available on what this means for Microsoft Access. What do you want to see in Access 2010? Share Your Ideas

- LightSwitch Beta is Access 2.0 almost, yet only functions with SQL Server, yet will it last? I am not developing in it until more customization is available. ---- http://www.chicagoworkshop.com

- I would like to see where you can insert a row anywhere in a table

- Trusted Locations - Get rid of it ! Pain in the @$$. Locations on networks are already secured by permissions and logins. Local Folders are already secured by local security. Clean it up Microsoft.

MSFT leaves developers hanging
- Why does Microsoft repeatedly abandon developers whenever they decide to no longer support features they feel are not profitable. They dumped toolbars for the ribbon and they dumped ADPs for sharepoint even though many years of effort were invested in the original design. Sure there were issues with Access instead of fixing and enhancing the existing model they have no qualms about dumping everything and heading in a new direction. This tactic seems clearly aimed at trying to drive new sales instead of upgrades and support of existing users. No wonder developers are leaving windows en masse and heading to OSS - that is the future and msft may become irrelevant.

Improvements needed in Access 2010
- Microsoft may enhance its useres if consider the followings: 1. ADP support must be enhanced to satisfy professional users. 2. Access 2003 menu style is much better as occupying less space and easy to use. 3. Security must be improved as there are too many 3rd party tools to break through Access security. It seems a play game instead of security module. 4. ADP and MDB sould be distributable in shape of exe for easy launching of projects. 5. Microsoft should take user's comments seriously otherwise serious developers would have to adopt some other choice instead of MS Access and its senceless developers.

- Microsoft products nowdays, become a collection of mistry, misery... we have to do a lot for few outcome.. this version is not 100% compatible with the other, for example it was a big jump for MSACCESS to work directly with sql server.. but for sorry.. this version cann't change or modify database diagram on SQL server 2008 ??!! misery it means we have to work on both at the same time.. what for? Another funny (un-understood) why still the ADP project is very poor in tools like themes, or application parts and many other areas which are available in accdb?? no answer.. and you feel you are lost in the middle of the way.. should we wait for SP's.. which will also be more and more disappointing as usual..
Multithreading, more memory, multicore
- How about upgrading the database core from code that was written for a 368 with 128mb? Access 2010 needs some real performance improvement by multithreading and the ability to use more than one core. Also the ability to use much more of the memory on a modern business computer. If a laptop has 6GB then Access should be able to use a significant portion of it. If the laptop has 2 or more cores (ALL business laptops are _at least_ dual core) then they should also be used.

More Profesional capabilities
- 1. We need an Access VBA compiler, in order to export the VBA code as EXE file. (macros is not so necessary) 2.Reset the customize menus of 2003 edition.

86 the ribbon
- I currently have a 150 item menu that is nearly impossible to convert to a ribbon. Using the old style menu precludes the use of the office button for Save,etc. Please bring back the floating database window. It is difficult to see what I want to get to in the new window. It is really awful. I also really dislike the new sorting and grouping. I prefer better control over this instead of an idiots view. Please stop making changes that insult serious developers. It takes me much longer to make modifications than before, primarily because it is so difficult to see what is there in the "Navigation Pane." It also takes up a big chunk of screen real estate. To currently program a basic user menu in 2003 it takes about 10 minutes. To do a ribbon takes about 1.5 to 2 days. I really don't want to pass on this cost to my customers.
The MS-ACCESS-Rutime must be independent
- Normal MS-ACCESS must to create some types of files for examble : accder (from accdb) mder(from mdb) ader (from adp). This files must to be executable only from MS-ACCESS-Runtime and not from Normal MS-ACCESS. This will solve many problems of distributions.

- Bring back the .adp functionality to interact with SQL. We have many adp-based SQL front ends and need to use them with our applications.
