Thanks for reminding me of this site...

I see some of the answers can be found there, like the below

Computer name
Network name
Windows OS (Only up to Win XP, as this site was long time abandoned..)

 Wondering where can I get the rest?

Ever since, nobody volunteered to maintain such a precious site-:(?!

I tried the OS code on my laptop here (Win7) and it returned nothing all :-(

I'm pretty sure rest can be obtained one way or another, as this Q has come up before.

Actually, the site has not been abandoned ... just not much, if anything new added.

Thanks experts,
While access.mvp has good utilities for access in general, the site Michael posted is the one ideal for those tasks, it has short code and its up to date, tested some & they work perfect!
