    Microsoft Access cannot open file on network place

    After installing an internet explore 7 update, I received the following
    message.

    Microsoft Access cannot open this file. - This file is located outside your
    intranet or on an untrusted site. Microsoft Access will not open the file
    due to potential security problems. To open the file, copy it to your
    machine or an accessible network location.

    The file I am trying to open is an access file on my network places.

    I just found out that I have the same problem. I located microsoft article
    303650 and even though i don't understand it I was able to get my computer to
    rad the access file i store on my p2p network. I used the workaround and I
    just added in the name of my computer where I store the files. (ex.
    //computername) and it worked. I have installed ie7 on 4 of my computers and
    two of them had this problem. one of the computers is running access 2003 and
    the othere access 2002 but that one is where i store all the files.

    if you want to store in your server, lets call it myserver:
    \\myserver\theaccessFilePath\theAccessDB.mdb
    is the full filespec you use to open your "theAccessDB.MDB database file
