Disabled Mode

If a database is not trusted, the default behavior for Access 2007 is to open the database in disabled mode. Disabled mode allows most of the embedded macros to run, but does not allow actions or events that are driven by Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code or components. If there is any question about the integrity of the database, it is a tremendous benefit to be able to open the file in disabled mode because you can view the data it without the risk of enabling malicious code.
