  • Access 2013 Web App - Can you hide and unhide tables in the table selector at run time via a macro?

  • Hi,

    The short answer to your question is no, this is not currently possible. You can only hide and unhide table caption names shown in the Table Selector in Access web apps at design time. This means it is always on or off; you can't use a SetProperty macro action for example to dynamically change the visible state of these at runtime in your browser.

    If this is an important feature request you'd like to make, I would suggest using the new Access User Voice site to submit a suggestion to the product team where others could also vote for your suggestion as well. There is one forum for desktop feature requests and one for web app suggestions.

    Here is the link to the team's Access User Voice:
