No. As far as I can see that's an application (MS Access) restriction.

Unfortunately that precludes using a scrollbar with a wider setting.

Maximum From width is 22.75 (or for those of you that use the comma or metric system 22,75in (57.79cm))
There are NO registry hacks or other modifications that can be made to alter this specification.> Access specifications> Access for Office 365, Access 2016, Access 2013, Access 2010, Access 2007

To Be Very Honest:
+ Clients often really do not know what is best for them - ESPECIALLY if they are moving from a Spreadsheet environment to a database environment.

- If there is a specific reason that they want this information in that format then there maybe a workaround that will meet them 1/2-way.
