    Macro Security warnings (Access 2003)

    As I open one of my Access database I get a Macro Security Warning.
    The help file says "on the Tools menu, point to Macro, and click Security." Well, I can't see "security".
    1 Does anyone know what the parameters should be for me to see this??

    2 To eliminate the current opening up problem I was going to set the security to low. However, this is probably not desirable even in the medium term. The Help says I can create a digital signature in VB, but if I can, it is not obvious. Could someone please start me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    Re: Macro Security warnings (Access 2003)

    Macro Security is one of the many reasons that a lot of us are not rushing to install Access 2003. We'll have to hope there is someone in this forum who has installed it. <!profile=WendellB>WendellB<!/profile> at least looked at the betas, but I'm not sure whether the macro security was fully applied at that stage.

    Sorry - we haven't been through this bit yet either. I suspect however that it may have to do with an AutoExec macro - does your database have one that runs when you first open the database? We're still in the throes of trying to install the developer tools - will post once we solve a couple of problems with that.

    If you do not see the security option under the Tools, Macro menu follow these steps to add this capabilty to your menu:

    On the Tools menu, click Customize, and then click the Commands tab.
    Click Rearrange Commands, select Menu Bar, and in the Menu Bar box, click Tools | Macro.
    In the Controls section, click Add.
    The Add command dialog box will appear.

    In the Categories box, click Tools, and then in the Commands box, click Security.
    The Security command will appear in the Controls box.

    Use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to position the Security command where you want.
    If you'd like to position the Security command in its own group (between horizontal lines), with Security selected, click Modify Selection and click Begin a Group. Select the menu item below the Security command, and repeat.

    Click Close twice.
    Click the Security Level tab, and then select the security level you want to use.
