    Security Warning on opening A2003 D/B (Access2003)

    Edited by HansV to replace zipped image by image.

    I have just upgraded to Office2003 and everytimr I enter a database I get the attached error dialog box.

    How can I stop this from happening?

    This is going to be a problem in that I have to set up a digital cert on my machine, then what happens when I transfer the database to a clients machine. Are they going to have to use the same cert on their machines and servers?

    I am a bit perplexed as to the whole concept.

    Thank you for your lucid (is that the word) explanation.

    If you obtain an "official" digital certificate from a company such as Verisign or Thawte, the client will be asked once whether he/she trusts your certificate. After that, ALL databases signed with the same certificate will be trusted. You cannot use a certificate created by the SelfCert program for this purpose, it will not be trusted on another user's PC. SelfCert is only for personal use on your own PC.

    Added later: The above statement about SelfCert is not correct. If you click Detail... in the warning about the certificate, you can import it. You'll get an extra warning that the validity of the certificate cannot be verified, but if you accept, the certificate will be imported anyway. (Thanks to <!profile=unkamunka>unkamunka<!/profile> for bringing this to my attention)
