Really confused about Digital Certification for Access Apps. Advice?

The more I look at the issue of digital certification for our Access
app, the more confused I get. The SelfCert feature that allegedly
installed with Office 2003 does not work. The entry is on my menu but
is marked "invalid". I've tried re-installing it several times to no
avail.

In any case, Self Certification won't cut it for us. I MUST get the
security warnings to go away -- permanently! My understanding is that
full blown PAID certification is the only way to do that -- correct?

Can anyone out there point me to the best possible certification
authority for doing this for Access apps. I need a company that
speaks English, has LIVE customer support and has reasonable prices.

Thanks tons for all responses.

Forget this and set Macro Security to Low this "feature" is almost
completely useless and can be reset by updating the registry with the
following.

Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Access\Security" "Level" "1"
Root: HKLM; Subkey: "Software\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\Engines"
"SandBoxMode"; "2"

The registry settings when applied using the PDW are
ROOT:Local Machine
Key: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Jet\4.0\Engines
Name:SandBoxMode
Value:#00000002

ROOT:Local Machine
Key: Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Access\Security
Name:Level
Value:#00000001

No problem setting this one.
ROOT:Local Machine
Key: Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Access\Security
Name:Level
Value:#00000001


Hmmm. For some unknown reason, I have no Key call "Security" at the
"Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Access\ registry path. When I open
RegeEdit and create it using "Add > Key" and then edit it, the edit
form will not allow me to add a name for the item. What am I missing
here?

Obviously, I must ultimately do this with VBA code on startup,
correct? I'm sorry to admit that I still don't have much experience
manipulating the Registry -- with or without VBA code.

Anyway, thanks for your response. Any further advice you can offer is
most appreciated. If I can be of any help to you, please ask.

On the Access 2003 menubar select Tools, Macro, Security and select the
Low setting on the dialog box this will set the Security key value.

No, the full blown certification is invalidated when you make
certain changes to the database. Common code practice like
updating the SQL in a stored query will invalidate a certificate.

With Self Certification, you can update the queries and the
mdb stays certified.

Just think of Access Security as a way to protect SQL Server,
and encourage people to switch from Access to SQL Server.
