OPENING OF DATABASE


V

Vic

I'm using Access 2003.

When I open the database I get a security warning. It states the file may
not be safe if it contains code that was intended to harm your computer. Do
you want to open the file or cancel the operation?

The database is a stand alone on a laptop. No network. No nothing. When
it was converted from an older version this message started coming up. After
6 months it's getting annoying now. I can't seem to find anything on how to
stop this message from coming up.

Can someone please help.

Thanks.

I don't have those options when I go to Tools. Macro's is by itselft and
there is no security setting within that. If I go to Security it has options
to setup user accounts and that. Not really want I'm looking to do. Should
I be looking somewhere else?

Thx

On some systems the default Macro menu does not show all options. Use customize
and then the option to "reset" that menu and the security options should show
up.

Thx for the response. I tried reset but it didn't work.

Under Macro's the only thing showing is Visual Basic Editor, Run Macro's and
grayed out is Convert Form's Macro's to Visual Basic.

Do I need to look somewhere else or am I just totally lost?

Thx

Check this article for more info on resetting the menus, but Tools - Macro -
Security is definitely where the setting is found.

I don't have 2003 here at home so I can't specifically check anything more
definitely.

The reference link you provided was the key. Had to manually add the
security. Thx so much for the help. Have a great weekend.
