    Remote Desktop Protocol

    I have an access database that is used for both Helpdesk and Computer Inventory. I would love to be able to modify the field with the workstation name so that when you click the name of the PC it launches RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and connects to the PC name in the form. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Well, I have desktop shortcuts to certain PC's, and they look like this:

    C:\Windows\System32\mstsc.exe /v:""

    You could use Shell and feed it that type of thing, concatenating in the name or address of the PC.
