Unable to add trusted location in Access 2007

I have a user right now, who, when he opens particular databases within Access 2007, recieves the message "Certain content in the database has been disabled", after which he can navigate to a cerain window and then enable the content.  I know that the method in which to avoid performing that step perpetually is to setup "trusted locatoins" on the network where access databases can reside.  However, when I attempt to go through the proper steps to add a trusted location within the local installation of Access, I receive the message "The remote or network path is not allowed by your current security settings".

Is this message a tell-tale sign that the network share in question was not configured to be trusted or is there something else on the desktop side that might have to be troubleshot?  I do not want to approach my network admins with this asking them to do extra work unless I have to, so I would like to verify the need to (or not to) get them involved.

Also, make sure that macro security is set to Low (it is High by default).  See the attached white paper.

Is this the only user with this issue?

Does the user have rights to this location?

It turned out that I needed to check the setting to <Allow trusted locations on my network> within <Trust Center Settings/Trusted Locations>.  This did the trick without the need to enable macros across the board.
