We have the new Sharepoint Foundation 2010 (the free version). I would like to add an Access database to the library and have the ability to open it in the Sharepoint site with Access 2007. After I upload the database into the Sharepoint site and try to use the 'open with access' on the ribbon, the option is grayed out.

My question is there something I need to enable on the server to be able to have this option available? Or do I need to have Access 2010 on my computer in order to open a database on my sharepoint site, which means Access 2007 does not allow me to do this?

What you're looking for is Access Services which is an Enterprise (the paid version) feature, per Microsoft's own Comparison Chart
