Can't see window toolbars and cant access switchboard -how 2 fix?

A designer took off the ability to use the main toolbar or view the 
switchboard, therefore can't update linked tables now that we're moving the 
database to a new server. Is there a way to re-enable these toolbars or 
update the link to the new location a different way? Thanks

Try pressing and holding the Shift key while opening the database.  Unless 
the designer removed this option you will by able to bypass the startup 
options, which means you will see the default toolbar and the database 
window, and will be able to make design changes.

First for something easy: Try pressing the F11 and see if you can see the 
database window.

Next try going up to Tools, Options, View tab and see what options are there.

Am I supposed to see the OUTPUT parameter's value in SQL Mgmt Stud
Hi, I have a stored procedure with an OUTPUT parameter. When I execute the procedure in SQL Server Mgmt Studio, am I supposed to see the OUTPUT parameter's value? I'm troubleshooting an issue and at this point I'm not sure if it's the application code or the stored procedure. When I execute the stored procedure, it does what it's supposed to do i.e. insert a new record, but I do not see the value of the output param -- unlike when I return values through a SELECT statement. Is this normal or am I supposed to see the value returned by the output param? -...

Send on Behalf of Distribution List #2
We are currently using Exchange 2003 in a W2k3 Active Directory environment. I would like to be able to allow a person to send an e-mail on behalf of a Distribution List. How do I do that? I do not see a Send On Behalf of property in the DL. The closest thing I've found is the Send As property in the Security tab, but that doesn't seem to work. Any ideas? As far as I know, this is not possible. You can only do a send on behalf of another Mailbox. If you have Send As rights you can put the DL in the From box, but it will not display the "on behalf of".
