What works

Creating and saving new databases and tables (in both .mdb and .accdb formats), exporting tables to Excel spreadsheet, text and PDF, adding relationships between tables, select queries.

What does not

Attempting to insert data into a Date/Time field fails due to bug 41911.

Selecting the option to open an exported table in Excel results in Excel not opening the file properly, and an error message saying "Microsoft Access can't start the OLE Server." The file can be opened manually, however.


What was not tested

Anything not mentioned above.

Additional Comments

The Staging branch was used. Requires a DLL override for "riched20.dll" to prevent black font/size labels appearing. The registry value "HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\MaxVersionGL" (DWORD) must be set to "30002" (hex) to avoid a black screen on load.
