Trusting Access databases in MS Access 2007 or MS Access 2010

Microsoft Access 2007 / 2010 -  Trusted Locations

If you have MS Access version 2007 or Ms Access version 2010 installed on your computer and you wish to run an Access database created by someone else then it is necessary for you to let your installation of Access know that you trust the database.  This is because Ms Access databases usually contain Visual Basic code and/or Macros, which could be programmed with malicious code.  For this reason Microsoft Access 2007 and 2010 will by default prevent any visual basic code or macros from running in any database which was not created on your computer.  In fact , you  should only ever run Access databases obtained from trusted sources.  

As with most Microsoft Access databases, all of our free samples contain visual basic coding. and/or macros.  Therefore to properly run any of our database sample it is necessary for you let your installation of MS Access know that the database was obtained from a trusted source.  If you do NOT add the folder containing the free database sample downloaded from our website as a trusted location then the database will not function correctly or may not function at all.

To let MS Access know that you trust a database which was not created on your computer, all you need do is to install the database in an existing TRUSTED folder location, or add the folder to the list of trusted locations in MS Access on your computer.  Ms Access allows you to trust a single folder, or to trust a folder and all sub-folders under that folder.  This is a simple process which takes only a minute or so to setup using the Microsoft Access database options.

The process for setting up Trusted Locations is similar in both Access 2007 and Access 2010.  To assist you we have created a step by step guide, which you can either view on-line or download as a PDF.  This guide will step you through the process of adding  trusted folder locations in for your version of Microsoft Access.
