Access 2007 allows Trusted Locations to be set by Policy.  Our Organization has a folder C:\Tracking\ set as such.  I am unable to determine how that was set and to update it so it will allow subfolders.

<I am unable to determine how that was set>
At some point someone must have set that folder as such..
If that folder is where all the data points to, it may have been set by default, as is the My Documents Folder.

<and to update it so it will allow subfolders.>
capricorns links gives detailed info on this, but the direct steps are:
Office Button-->Access Options-->Trust Center-->Trust Center Settings-->Trusted Locations
...Then select: C:\Tracking\
Then click: Modify
The check ON the box for: Subfolders of this location are also Trusted.

But as always, consult your networking department before making these changes.

I have seen the Microsoft bulletin, but do not have OCT.  The other response shows how to set up a trusted location on an individual computer.  I did find out that when you install an Access Runtime App, it creates a Trusted site by policy that you can not modify from Access, however, you can modify it using Regedit.

Thanks Anyway.  I have found a way around my problem

for one, you did not specify Access Runtime App.. and we don't have any crystal ball ( mine was broken) to figure out that is what you are after...
