Trusted locations ACC2007

P: n/a
Hi all,
Read the posts about the trust centre, has anyone else encountered
this?
I've set up a trusted location for my front end, and that works OK on
my development folder.
I changed the trust centre folder for the distributed copy.
The copy and any copy on the user's machine ignores the trusted
location and requires the user to enable the content.
I've tried deleting and re-entering the trusted location, any
suggestions?

That is a setting *on your machine* not *of the file*. Every user will need to
make that same setting on their PC inside Access.

G'day Rick,
To test the Trust Centre settings I copied the distribution file to my
desktop, deleted/reenterded the trusted locations and it still ignored
the change. I reopened the db I went looking around and also found
the country settings were US English, so since I only started using
2007 today decided I should have changed it to my location, next time
I opened the db that fixed the problem.
I know its not related, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it...

btw when I started Access for the first time today the Navigation Pane
did not appear by default as claimed in the Acc 2007 help file...could
be off putting for some poor devil.

Thanks for your response.

Think about what a trusted location is. You are telling Access "I trust the
files at this location so don't bother me with security warnings". A setting
like that only makes sense if it applies to your installation of Access as it
pertains to your user profile on that machine. It makes no sense for a file to
have a trusted folder setting because a file is not what warns you about the
security ramifications of opening other files. It is Access that does that.
