    Potential security concern warning in ACCDE file

    I've got a very simple ACCDE file that opens up with the standard dire security warning. I can blow right through it, but I'd rather disable the warning if possible. I haven't found anything in the Options - Current Database page that would affect this.



    Like I say, it's not impeding the work. It's just annoying to have to deal with it each time the database is opened.
    Thanks, Paul

    You could adjust your Macro/VBA trust settings, but that is not recommended, as it could allow malicious things through (a huge security concern).

    It is usually better to use Trusted Locations: https://support.office.com/en-us/art...3-4e7c67147fb4
    or digitial signatures: https://support.office.com/en-us/art...3-9029551e61a1

    No, I wouldn't want to do that. I am going to leave them with the minor annoyance, at least for this project. I may share your links with my coworkers in case they want to use them.

    Thanks for your suggestions.

    Isn't it true that some code or macros won't run (usually with no indication) if the db is not in a trusted location? If so, are you not setting yourself up for trouble by not dealing with the issue? You may not have problem code or macros - yet.
    - "doesn't work" is no help.Error #s/text do. State what's happening.
    - Use code tags for code/sql; show where errors occur
    Make all suggested changes in copies of your database or to its objects
