I was in need of getting detailed network information in a development/DMZ environment with heightened security. In particular, Domain Controller information. I did a lot of NSLOOKUP’s and PING’s to the gateway and dns servers to see what name(s) returned. I got zero results. (Very tight security. :-) )
[box type="info"]My buddy pointed me to the command GPRESULT.exe. It’s a built-in executable for Windows operating systems.
I was able to get a detailed report of the NIC card and the network settings. A great tool to use![/box]

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.
- 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.
