Trust Signer?

I encounter a Execution Security Alert dialogbox:

Notes has been asked to execute the following action which does not fit within your security profile

Action: DbColumn

Signed by: ...

Not allowed: Ability to read other databases

I was prompted this message the first time I use the application and as many times as the number of DbColumns and DbLookups on the form.

How do I suppress this dialogbox? Has it anything to do with cross certificate?

Where can I get info from the web?

As far as I know, date functions return date/time from the client computer clock. Date format is also taken from the client PC settings. Can it be taken from the server?

I read two questions there:
1.) Trusting application designer
2.) Date/Time settings

Both topics has to do with local LotusNotesClient settings.
To avoid further trust questions do this:
In the NotesClient menue goto this dialog box: File->Preferences->UserPreferences
Into this DialogBox in the Basics section you can see at bottom one button labeled: SecurityOPtions
Pressing this button you will get your local ECL dialog box. The complete title is:
Workstation Security: Execution Control LIst

On the left side on this dialog box you see, like in an ACL dialog, the signer names;
On the right side you see eleven checkboxes for workstation se
curity, seven checkboxes for Java, and eight for JavaScript

Look for this signer name on the left side:
Lotus Notes Template Development/Lotus Notes
When this entry is marked, than all checkboxes are swiched on.

Do the same for your "signed by ..." name you mentioned above: mark all checkboxes checked.
Another one option is to create a new entry in this lefthand signer list.
To create a new entry, press the add button below the signer list. You are allowed the to define a new signer name.
You can enter a generic name, like: */Lotus Notes
Or another like:  */MyCertOrg

So far for your ECL question.

For your Date/Time question read this first and ask your question again:
Or this one containing the same article:

I want you to read this article to clarify wath you mean with the simple question:
"Can it be taken from the server?" :-))

The answer so complex, concerning so many areas (views, LotusScript, string converted dates, etc...).
Solving for you this date problem neads change of whole Notes design ;-)
