  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.

  3. 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

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  6. 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…

  7. 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?

  8. ... use data of changes made on a document and time spent on it to make the user sure not to mistakenly close the doc without saving it.

    ... use data of changes made on a document and time spent on it to make the user sure not to mistakenly close the doc without saving it.
    This may happen when the open docs are so similar in content and everything, as happened for myself and 2hours effort disappeared. For example you can ask twice if the user is sure to close the doc without saving it.

  9. Provide a VBA method to count cells for color set by conditional formatting

    I noticed others have asked for a way to count cells by color. Great idea, but while you're at it, there's no way in VBA to count cells by assessing the color property set by conditional formatting, either. It is possible to create a function that will count cells that have the color property set using the fill method, but it has to be set volatile. It appears that the color property for a cell is not the same for conditional formatting as when using fill. That's interesting, and might actually be useful; however, the method would need to test…

  10. MS Access Developer Tools to add.

    This is for developing Access Databases and should be part of the Database Tools: One thing about developing Access Database or any database in that manner is the need to interview workers and analyze current work functions as part of database planning ... I think there needs to be some sort of automated questions document forms and other sheets to help organize and plan the database.

    I can see there are some database tools such as Analyze tables and database Documenter but those doesn't help much before the databases are developed.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Support 1password's One-time password feature w/ Office 365 MFA authentication

    Would love to see support for 1Password's One-time password feature for MFA authentication. It seems it can already read the URL but doesn't authenticate with O365 MFA service correctly.

    Refer to feature here:

  16. Radio Buttons not working in Modern SharePoint Lists - Office 365

    Radio Buttons not working in Modern SharePoint Lists - Office 365

    In the modern experience view, the multiple choice option does not display as radio buttons even though the field is setup for radio buttons. It looks more like a drop down if anything. Is this a known issue or is this by design?

  18. 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…

  20. 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…
