I have an Access database that I wrote with Office XP and lots of VBA.  I am trying to use it in Office 2010 but all off these security options are not making these smooth sailing.  Is there a way to turn this off and update my DB as well?

Go to Properties, Security Center, Settings for Security Center, Settings for Macro, and select the bottom option: Activate all macros.

Also, be sure your db is in a Trusted Location - found in the Options section, Trust Center>>Trust Center Locations ...

And for sure what Cactus said ... Options>>Trust Center >> Trust Center Settings >> Macro Settings >> Set to Low (Enable all macros ....)

Thank you, all.  I feel daunted by the task ahead of moving this to Windows 7 and Access 2010.

I should not be that ... big of a deal.
Be SURE your app compiles in A2003 before opening in A2010. Make FREQUENT backups ... which can be done in a couple of seconds in Windows Explorer ... Control C, Control V. Or just hold CTRL and drag db to create instant copy.

If you really want to start off right ... create a blank db in A2010, then import all your objects from the A2003 db. This will help result in minimal conversion issues - especially for more complex dbs. Again, make sure your A2003 db compiles first.
