Opening Databases That Contain Macros
If you assign a submacro to a key that normally does something else (such
as Ctrl+F, which usually summons the Find and Replace dialog box), your
submacro overrides the Access command.
Opening Databases That Contain Macros
A feature in Access 2013 guards against databases that contain viruses in
the form of macros. Unfortunately, this feature also guards against normal
databases that contain macros, action queries, and VBA procedures. When
you open a database that contains one of these types of objects, you may
see a message asking whether you really want to take a chance on running
the macros in the database, as shown in Figure 1-5. You can choose whether
to open the database with the macros enabled (see Book I, Chapter 2 for
details). If you or someone you trust created the database, click the Enable
Content button in the message; otherwise, click the Close icon to dismiss the
message, leaving some macros disabled.

Access has

that your
database

macros.
When Access has disabled macros, you can read about it by clicking the File
tab on the Ribbon, clicking Info, and noticing the big fat warning message. If
the security warning shown in Figure 1-6 doesn’t appear, macros are enabled.
