Access databases can contain macros and visual basic code that is typically needed to ensure that the database functions as intended, but can potentially contain malicious routines. In this movie, Adam will show you how to add the exercise files to a trusted location so that Access will allow them to run.
- [Voiceover] Access databases can contain macros and visual basic code that is typically needed to ensure that the database functions as intended, but can potentially contain malicious routines. Because of this, Microsoft requires that you specifically white list each and every database that you start up. You'll see this presented as a yellow security warning message that appears across the top of the screen here. Access is asking you if you want to enable the content, and we'll have to do this for each database. So, go ahead and press this Enable Content button here. But, rather than do that for each and every database that we'll load up throughout the course, I'd like to make one small change to the program settings which will grant the required permissions to all of our exercise files at once.
To do this, we'll come up to the File tab here, and come down to Options. In the Options screen, we're going to choose the Trust Center option here at the bottom. Then, over here at the far right, I'll press the Trust Center Settings button. Then, at the top of this list, I'll find Trusted Locations. Here, we're going to add a trusted location that will trust all the exercise files that are on our desktop. To do that, I'll come down to the Add New Locations button, I'll browse out to My Computer, and we'll find My Desktop here, and then, I'll scroll down on the list and find the Exercise Files folder here.
Once I find it, I'll select the Okay button, and then I want to make sure that I press this checkbox here that says Subfolders of this location are also trusted. That way, all the subfolders, and the exercise files within those subfolders, will automatically be trusted by Access. We can add a description here as to why we're trusting this, and I'm just going to make a note of the course name that we're using here. Once I've typed in Access 2016: Queries in Depth, I'll press the Okay button, and you'll see that gets added up here to our list of trusted locations. Now, we can go ahead and press the Okay button, we'll press Okay again, and that will return us back to our database.
So, not that our database files are trusted by Access, we can get down to the business of exploring queries.
