I learned a new trick today from Michael the PM for the navigation pane. We have heard a few of you have missed the ALT D shortcut to open an object in design. As you know, ALT in ribbon apps now allows you to access ribbon shortcuts. Next time you want to open an object in design view, try Control Enter.
On a related note, a while back Russell Sinclair posted the following comment to my blog about the nav pane:
The default setup when you open a new database or a database that hasn't been opened in Access 2007 is not configurable. I would like to be able to define whether or not the search shows by default, which list is used, and what view (list, icon, detail) is shown.
Russell--sorry for taking so long to get back to you but this is pretty easy. You just need to create a custom New Database template with the search box on and your favorite view type selected.
Additionally, there is a new visual demo available titled Meet the Navigation Pane.
For custom groups it is possible to rename the shortcut. Is there any way to change the Icon?
Sorry, no. We don't have icons for custom groups in 2007. That was a feature we wanted to do, but it didn't fit into the schedule.
POSSIBLE BUG WITH ACCESS 2007 RUNTIME If access 2002 runtime is loaded on a machine, access 2007 runtime does not install. It appears that it detects that 2002 is there, and assumes since runtime is already loaded that it shouldn't install itself My test to confirm this was as follows: Windows XP Profesional OS SP2
Installed our previous version which was access 2002
Installed our access 2007 version Both installers are using InstallShield. InstallShield does not remove access 2002 as part of the uninstall. So when the install occurred on 2007 runtime, it did not complete and 2002 runtime was still on the machine as to be expected. I expected to see both runtimes loaded in Program Manager. the only way access 2007 runtime appears to install is if there is not MSACCESS.exe full version or runtime of any version on the machine. Am I incorrect that access 2007 runtime should have installed even with 2002 runtime on the machine?
I will have our runtime team take a look and get back to you.
The link "Meet the Navigation Pane" doesn't work for me: "This Web page is unavailable". Since it matches this topic in case someone is interested I had added a new tutorial on the Navigation Pane to my website: www.access-freak.com/tutorials.html
I wasn't able to get a exact answer on your runtime install question. I think the next step would be to have a support engineer narrow down the issue and push it to the product team if there is a bug here. You can start the process by calling our support line support.microsoft.com/contactussupport.
