    Unblock unsafe expressions/macros (Access 2003)

    When I opened Access for the first time, it prompted with all those forms about blocking unsafe expressions...etc! I clicked on YES to block unsafe expressions and open the DB. However, know it is limiting certain functionality in all DB's I open. How do I now unblock the option? Hope this is clear!

    More than you ever wanted to know: Frequently asked questions about Access security warnings.

    In general, you won't notice the restrictions imposed by "sandbox mode". The functions that are blocked are still available in VBA, and most of them aren't the kind of functions you'd use in expressions anyway. So there is no need to be concerned. However, if you really want to turn off sandbox mode, see How to configure Jet 4.0 to prevent unsafe functions from running in Access 2003 and read about the SandboxMode registry entry.
