Buttons won't work in Access 2013

I have an Access db that was working correctly in Access 2010.  When I try and run it on a machine with Access 2013 the buttons will not navigate through the interface.

Using the Navigation Pane I can open tables and view data. I can run queries.  I can manually open forms and reports.  But none of my buttons respond when clicked.

I don't know of if it is related, but when I first opened in Access 2013 I had some missing references which I cleared.  I then compiled with no errors. Not sure if my problem is related to the issue I was having with the references or not.

Thanks in advance for your help.

No, what your missing is that the DB is no longer in a trusted location.

If it's not in a trusted location, then it should be asking you to enable the content when you start it.

Unless you answer yes, all marco's and code will not work.

The other option is to add its current location as a trusted location (Office button, options, trust center).

Oddly, it is not prompting me to enable content as I was accustomed to it doing in Access 2010 - unless it's in a different place and I am missing it.  

Also, I had previously checked the box to enable our network as a trusted location but that didn't help.

I don't have 2013 loaded at the moment, but I'm sure that's the problem.

Look under the trust settings for message bar and see what it's set to.

By the way, is this DB in the same place as the old one or no?

YEP!  You are right!

I had thought that checking the box to "allow trusted locations on my network" would have done the trick.  But I had to actually add our network path as a trusted location.

Thanks for putting me on the right path!  I appreciate your quick help.
