Security warning even if Macro Security Level set to Low

One of my customers is running an Access 2003 application. They have
the Macro Security Level set to Low. When the .mde app is executed
directly from the C: drive on their server, they get into the
application just fine. When they execute the app from a mapped network
drive (a link to the app on the C: drive), they get get the Security
Warning and have to click on Open to get into the application.

I have seen this same app run at other sites, set up the same way
(using mapped network drive), and they do not get the security warning.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi Kathy,

Is the the database split in to a front end and back end?

If it is it could be the back end that does not have it security set to
low.

Just an idea.

Good luck,

Nick

The setting is "for Access" not "the file".
