How would go about doing this?

I have a database that will be distributed to several users on our system.  Not all of them have a full version of Access2003.  I have installed 2003 runtime on their system.  I have run into a couple of problems when they open up their database if given them a security warning.  How would you go about setting it up so they would not receive this warning?  Once they get into the database it won't let them right click and filter for data.  How would go about setting it up so they would be able to do this?  All your help is greatly appreciated.  Example of code would be helpful.

in access, go to tools > macro... > security, then go to tab "security level" and select "low".  note how access says "not recommended": this is exactly because it will never again display the warning for any mdb or mde file (not just for yours).  so be sure that your users do not open any other mdb/mde files that can have harmful macros.

about the security warning: we had the exact same problem.  first, we tried to digitally sign the database so you get the checkbox "don't show warning again".  this is an elegant way to solve the problem, but it turned out to be a hassle with the digital signatures and certificates.  so we ended up setting the macro security in the runtime version so low that the warning wouldn't show up anymore (the client had a network that was sufficiently protected against intruders, so this was acceptable).

How would you go about doing that?  Could give me some example code?

I would just like to re iterate that performing the downgrade of macro security wil leave you open to risk of infection
