To capitalize on its popularity, we are back to work building new databases and polishing what was shipped in the box and have just released to Office Online an update to 15 exisitng templates and launched 5 new templates including Inventory. This update also includes a bunch of small bug fixes and the following two new features:



What’s cool about this update is that if you have Access 2007, the new templates show up in Getting Started as long as you have an Internet connection and don’t use the Local Templates category…Check out the screens below, or browse the Access 2007 templates on Office Online.

    It seems that the navigation pane can’t be customized in ADPs.  Works OK in accdb, but there options to ad/delete, etc are disabled in ADPs.

    Is that a bug, or by design?

    Also, displaying a relationships diagram created in SQLSS 2000 crashes Access ADPs every time.  This bug persists from Ac 2002

    Nav pane costomizations are stored in a system table. ADPs don’t have system tables–unfortunately, it is by design.

    We fix crashing bugs on a regular basis based on the number of hits coming into the bucket. Sounds like this issue hasn’t hit very high in the bucket. Feel free to email me the repro steps and I can have a tester look at it. I know we test relationship diagrams against SQL Server on a regular basis so there likely is an outside case that is gone wrong.

    AL – did you want me to have our support person open a case for you on ADP perf? I’m still waiting for you to send me email.
