Enable Content / Macros in 2007

What do you all of you guys do to surpress this message indefinitely when an A2007 file is initially opened?

Whenever I would do this, I'd simply enable the content once and set my trust center macro settings to 'always trust macros'. That would surpress the message on a permanent basis after that.

But I'm dealing with someone right now that is claiming that process doesn't work, and the message still appears on subsequent opens of the db file.

I'm going to google this of course, so I'm simply checking to see if there is anything under the surface that you guys know about that I might not

Access 2007: Enable Macros on Startup
Has anyone figured out if it's possible to enable vba macros on startup using a script? In Access 2003 I used application.setoption to tweak a number of application parameters though I'mnot sure if I can use this to enable macros in 2007.

I know that I can manually enable macros through the trust center and I could also add a trusted location (could prob. also automate a registry update to do same). My preference though isto enable macros using a script as over 600 users will, on occasion, use these databases and I don't want to spend my days telling people how to enable macros.


Digital signature
I just converted a database from 2003 to 2007 and got my first look at the 2007 format. When I opened the db I get a security warning saying certain content has been disabled. I clicked the options button which said the potentially harmful content is VBA Macro. I was able to enable it for this session only, but I would like for it to run right whenever anyone opens it.
I read that the macro must have a digital signature, and followed the path to select one, but there were no certificates to select. I'm sure I probably wouldn't want to enable all macros, but none of the other paths lead me to anything useful.
How can I get by this, and will I need to do it for every db I create or convert from here on out


Mcro security
I am new to Access 2007 but when I go into an application I have to hit the option button to enable the macros. Otherwise nothing runs on the app. Any button I hit does nothing to I enable the macros, which is funny because I do not have any that I made. What Access has I do not know. In any case, if I am enabling the macro to use the applications, why do I not just go into the trust center and enable it permanently?
I know this opens the application to macro viruses, but again if you have to enable it anyway, I am not sure I see the point.
Can someone please let me know if they there would be a reason for not just permanently enabling them.


How to enable code and macros
Microsoft Access 2007 will disable your code and macros unless you enable it or add your database location as a trusted location. This will show you how to do it.


Access 2007 Macros & Trust Issue
I converted a database from Access 2003 to 2007 and now the macros do not work. I have made sure that it is in a trusted location. I have selected "enable all macros". The message bar is supposed to pop up, but I have never seen it.

The error on the macros says that steps won't work if the database is not trusted.

Unable to click "Enable Content" unless in Design View
I've just designed a user login screen and tried distributing it on a client PC. The usual warning came up but I noticed I can't click the Enable button.

The only way I can click the enable button is to right click and select Design view. I haven't notice this behaviour before when developing in Access 2007 (I am using Access 2010 now).

This would of course cause a problem when I distribute it later as ACCDE to end users. Any idea why I need to go into design view to click the Enable content button?


Disable security warning to "enable content"?
I have a simple DB setup so that when it opens the user cannot see anything other than my switchboard form, and the Access running window with no tabs, menus, options, navigation pane, etc.

My issue is that if I make a copy or put my DB on a different computer, it always comes up with the "enable content" warning. I need a way to avoid this or disable it.

Otherwise, if someone clicks my Exit button on the switchboard, they get an error. And it also shows the Home tab, which may be confusing for the person using my DB if they decide to not click on "enable content

Enable Content button does not display Option dialog box
When I set settings to not trust any documents, the message bar displays, saying it is blocking content, with an Enable Content button. When I click the button on my computer, it simply enables the content and that is that.

When my boss clicks the Enable Content button on his computer for the same database, a dialog box displays asking if he wants to make the database a trusted document. That dialog box does not show up on my computer at home (I work off-site) and I need to display that dialog box as part of a tutorial I am creating.

I cannot use the boss's computer. I need my computer to display the dialog box asking if I want to make the current file a trusted document when I click the Enable Content button. Any idea how this can be done, or why the same database would cause the dialog box to display on one computer and not another? Both are Windows 7 Professional, Office 2010 Professional.

Allow Code To Run . .
I would like to find a simple way to help my users enable their macros. I currently have a database that displays a form as soon as the database is opened. The issue is the form will not work unless Macros are enabled.

I would like to have a form with instructions on how to enable macros. Once the user open the database, if macros are enabled, the form with the instructions will be set to hide, and the regular form will be made visible.

In Excel there is a "Workbook" open event, is there such a thing in Access? Also, how can I prevent the user from accessing the Access optoins and changing the "Display Form" field?

Macros not working in 2003
I have built a database in 2007 but saved it as 2000 compatible. I built a form with an option group with only two options and a button. The embedded macro behind the button Closes any open report then has conditions that OpenReport A or B.

Everything works fine in Access 2007. When another user opens it in Access 2003 the buttons don't work. His security setting is set to low so he is not even prompted to enable macros.

Any suggestions as to why the buttons aren't working


Database file size keeps changing?
I have created one database using ms access 2007. I save it today and its 2MB, I save it tomorrow and its 800KB. any ideas? Initially I thought it was because this depended on whether I had allowed the unknown macros content whilst re-opening the file, then saving it later on and noting the file size difference. The macros warning appears whilst opening my database, for my own files I usually allow, although I have now disabled the warning completely (top left of screen office button > access options > trust centre > trust centre settings > message bar > never show information about blocked content).

Can anyone tell me if this is related, or what the reason for the file size change is most likely to be? Whether it shows as 800kb or 2MB, the content is always identical, no data missing.

Automate applications with macros in Access 2007
If you have been using Access in the past, the easiest way to automate the tasks would have been by using the macros. On the other hand, programmers might have realized that writing VBA (visual basic for applications) modules is the best way to automate things in any Access database.
Access 2007 makes it very easy to create macros. In previous versions, many macros could not have been created without using VBA code but in Access 2007 new features have been added to eliminate the need of using VBA code.
