    I recently switched my home computer from Office 2002 SP3 to Office 2003. (Long story, not important.) I have several Access databases that open fine under Access 2002, which I am still running at work. When I open these files under Access 2003, I get the error message:

    This file may not be safe if it contains code that was intended to harm your computer.

    The files are not infected, of this I am sure. My computer computer is regularly scanned by Norton and my office computer is regularly scanned by F-Secure. I suspect the problem are the macros I wrote that are in these files. They work fine if I ignore this "error" message.

    Is there any way to stop getting this message when opening these files?

    Ronny,

    This is just the "improved" security model in Office 2003. If the DBs have VBA in them you're going to get this message until you get them digitally signed or lower the security level.
