    Macros blocked

    i have a database in a network folder. When i open it, it says microsoft has blocked all macros for security reason.

    I've gone through the trust center in access and tried to add that network folder as a trusted location, but it says that that position cannot be added. I've tried adding the location using the IP at first, then i tried using the servername, still no success. I've checked the flag to allow trusted location on my network and the flag to allow documents on a network to be trusted. I've also tried with firewall off. In the end, i've tried to enable all macros without warning and the activeX thing too, just to try, and still when i open the database it says that microsoft is blocking macros for security. WHat am i supposed to do?

    Did you download the database from the internet or an email? If so, you will need to unblock the file to remove the 'mark of the web':
