  1. Collapsible vba procedures

    By default each procedure should only have the first procedure line (header) visible with an expand button to show all lines within the procedure. Currently a lot of time is spend scrolling through code.

    I would also like to see the two drop downs for general and declarations changed to a tree view on the left so that I can more easily navigate procedures and methods.

    • Improve VBA IDE: Highlight start and end of Blocks e.g. If/End If, With/End With, Do/Loop etc

      It would be great if the VBA IDE would highlight...

      (a) The start and of Blocks such as If/End If. So if you highlighted the "If" the matching "End If" would also be highlighted. This would be great for both coding but also auditing inherited code.

      (b) Highlight incomplete Blocks: so if you start "If" it's red until such time the closing "End If" is added

      • Provide a way to get the Office 365 Version on the client side

        Office 365 has monthly versions (such as 1803, 1810, etc.). This version is displayed in the Office client application's Account tab.

        I couldn't find a way to programmatically get this Version number on the client side. There is only the usual full build number.

        Is there a way or can a way be provided, please?

        • Enable Microsoft Bookings for 365 Enterprise E3 Developer

          Hi,

          I have been using Microsoft Bookings for a while until last year it suddenly was disabled for my account.
          I was using the outlook.office.com/owa/?path=/bookings/ url to access Bookings but are no longer able to.

          Also the "Business Apps (Free)" are not available for my E3 Developer subscription, but they are for the normal E3 which is weird.

          It would be great if Bookings or the Business Apps (Free) could be enabled for the E3 Developer subscription.

          Thanks!

          • Open XML SDK - add a support to save Word docx as PDF. 3rd party tools are costly and do not render complex docx as SaveAs2 of Word Interop.

            Word Interop is a nice solution, yet very slow (comparing to OpenXml) and unreliable (we encountered that if a user clicks Ctrl+C to copy something, whilst Interop is running in a background, generating multiple documents, its content will be pasted onto one of those documents, although the user intended to paste it somewhere else) . There are 3rd party solutions to save as PDF from OpenXml, yet they do not render correctly our relatively complex invoices (header with image and table, footer with table and so on), so for now we ended up to generate them all as docx and…

            • VBA IDE Github integration for working on code

              I work in VBA alot at work and would be great to create repositories of VBA Code for editing from multiple machines and environments and tracking changes to Modules and classes. I don't get to use more advanced IDE's because of licensing issues and IA Security.

              • Operating System is not configured

                I was just helped with my issue. I have an Office 2013 H&B that was updated on 8 january. Since I received the error except in Outlook.
                I use Bitdefender as an antivirus.
                There is an issue between both applications. I can keep running Bitdefender (Total Security 2019) but I need to deactivate "Advanced Threat Defense". When that is down everything works.
                Now it's patience till another update comes.

                • Allow a VBA connection between ACCESS and EXCEL

                  I would like to be able to link from ACCESS applications to EXCEL Sheets and from EXCEL applications to ACCESS tables. Of course using VBA.
                  Probably too much to ask.

                      • Extend Word JavaScript API to add the ability to modify style definitions, list templates, and document variables

                        There should be a way for an Office web add-In to modify existing styles, list templates, and document variables without closing and reopening the document. The JavaScript InsertOoxml method allows you to introduce new styles, list templates, and document variables to the active document but not to modify existing ones. The same was true of the VBA InsertXML method. However, VBA provided easy, direct access to these objects via Document.Styles, Document.ListTemplates, and Document.Variables collections. For example, in VBA, modifying a style was as simple as ActiveDocument.Styles(“NameOfStyle”).Font.Size = #. In contrast, it appears that the only existing objects outside of a…

                        • Hi

                          Hello Dears
                          I am an Iranian and one of the millions of Microsoft Office users
                          One of the problems with Office is that Excel does not have Persian history and I mean Hijri Shamsi (Jalali calendar)
                          Several other countries also use this calendar
                          So please add this calendar to Excel
                          Thank

                          • Give the VBA IDE a major overhaul finally

                            It's been over 20 years since the VBA IDE was created in its present form. MS has since created a number of modern and efficient development environments. Even if the VBA environment has long been referred to as outdated: it is simply the everyday reality for the majority of professional Office developers (especially all serious Access developers). I can not imagine that it lacks capacity to MS to bring the VBA IDE into a more contemporary form.

                            To insist that it would not be worthwhile to invest in an improved IDE, is roughly as if an automaker refuses any further…

                              • Add new msbuild/.csproj support to Office Developer Tools for VS 2017

                                Update the templates for VSTO Addins in the Office Developer Tools for VS in order to support the new msbuild engine introduced along with .net core and VS 2017.
                                For example, we need the new .csproj format to move from packages.json to csproj to use nuget packages the easy way.
                                Using a .net standard library at the moment is no fun.

                                I tried to port my existing vsto project, but failed after hours of investigation: The VSTO .targets files seem to be incompatible with the new msbuild engine.

                                Thank you!

                                  • Improve VBA IDE (MS Access): better integration with SQL Server for query development in Access Front End

                                    Access can link to SQL Server tables but it would great if it had the same intellisense that SQL Server has for writing SQL Statements directly into the VBA IDE. So if you referred to a linked (or local) table in your VBA code then typed the period, intellisense would show the available fields.

                                    • Improve VBA IDE: Line numbering by default

                                      Line numbering is essential for efficient error trapping. It would be great if the VBA had line numbering by default. To be effective, it should...

                                      (a) automatically renumber when code is edited
                                      (b) be able to be toggled between show/hide

                                      • Exchange Online Protection - Powershell cmdlets to obtain status, to view message(headers), to release messages

                                        As as administrator PowerShell is a powerful Tool to survey and handle various situations.

                                        I'd really love the ability to get the status of our EOP quarantine - also to be able to release quarantine mail using PowerShell cmdlets.

                                        It seems an omission this is not possible today.
