I have a table (tblHostNames) that has a list of all our PC names in it. These hostnames are displayed on a form.  I would like to have button that pings each host name and if it is reachable it changes the color to green and if not then to red.  I know I can use conditional formatting for the color changes so that's not an issue.  I just can't find much when it comes to using a table to ping host names.  Is there a way to do this?
