Unable to open database residing in another computer of network

Hi

I am facing a problem with regard to opening of Access Databases,
resident on pcs of my office network connected thru LAN, from my
machine on the network. The folders in which these databases reside
are in full share mode and the folders are accessible. All the network
machines including mine have Windows XP SP2 OS and Access 2002. All
the versions are registered.
Whenever I am double clicking an Access Database on the network, the
first message which is flashed is like this:

Security Warning: Do you want to open the file ?
Name: xyz.mdb
Publisher: Unknown Publisher
Type: Microsoft Access application

After pressing the "yes" button, the following message is displayed:

"Microsoft Access cannot open the file. The file is located outside
your intranet or on an untrusted site. Microsoft Access will not open
the file due to potential security problems.
To open the file, copy it to your machine or an accessible network
location"

Can't fathom why the security warning is being displayed and why is it
saying that it is outside my intranet. The folder is accessible and
visible. Suprisingly, I can copy the database from the network
computer in which it resides and paste it into the machine from which
I am operating. Once it is on my machine, the database can be opened.

I checked the security settings of the Internet zones on my computer.
The 'intranet' security setting is set at 'medium-low'.
"Automatica lly detect intranet" checkbox is also checked.

Pls help!!

I volunteer at a youth ministry agency and help them with their student database. They have two computers, both running Windows XP. Both have Office 2002 installed without Access, except that Computer A had A97. They wanted both computers to be able to use the database, stored on Computer A. I can't get them to do that, and it seems to be a network problem. I installed A2K on each computer, putting it in a special directory which I...

Hi, Last week one client had errors caused by another program which led the IT guys to wipe out and rebuild the hard drive on one particular computer. Prior to this happening, the people in this department were using a 2000 format database through Access 2007 without any issues. Since IT rebuilt said hard drive, one user now gets a message when attempting to open the same database that 2007 cannot open older format databases. The...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
