Security Warning - this file may not safe...

P: n/a
Hello!

Every time I open my application (written in MS 2003 after being
converted from a previous edition), I get the message "This file may
not be safe if it contains code that was intended to harm your
computer". I suppose not! My question is, how can I disable this
message???

Many thanks,
Jack B. Nimble

Really annoying, isn't it?

To disable it, click Macro on the Tools menu.
There's a Security flyout.
Set the macro security to Low.

Access 2007 has a better solution. You tell it which folders you trust, and
then it doesn't bug you for databases in those folders. For databases in
other locations, the code doesn't run at all.
