I have questions concerning the Access 2007 Application Macro Settings for applications placed out on Network.
Can the settings be made in the application and saved and then placed on the network?
I placed an Access 2007 application on the network and some people are unable to open and use all of the macro buttons.  The macro buttons are disabled and the searches do not work.  I would rather make one setting in the application and save it and then have it work.  Do I have to go to each individuals computer and make the setting to enable macros?

I can go to the Access Opetion and Trust Center/Macro Settings and Enable all macros and all of the buttons then work.

Also I have the enable content appearing at the top whe  the application is first opened on another persons machine the first time.  I want this to go away and not appear.

Please advise.

Are the PC's on a domain? if they are Group policy should take care of you:

If not, you're out of luck. I have heard of people scripting the policy and make the changes but I have yet to find a solution that actually works. It may be out there though!
