How to connect Access to SharePoint 2010 if the feature within a view and/or list is missing.

Anyway, when I went to list view; the button to “Open with Access” was greyed out. I went into my settings and tried to create a new view with Access. It wasn’t there either.

Steps below:

  • So I opened up Access 2010.
  • Then chose the OPEN feature.
  • What is cool is in the drop down area; there was a item called, “SharePoint Foundation Services.”
  • I copied and pasted the URL to the SharePoint calendar that I needed to update…….

And then *POOF!* *MAGIC!* I can then update data via Access.

Happy SharePoint-ing!
