Chapter 1. Access 2003 for Access 97 and... > What’s New in Access 2003

What’s New in Access 2003

The following sections describe Access 2003 features that are new to Access 2002 users, which are few compared to prior version changes. For the first time in Access’s history, there’s no new database version; like Access 2002, 2003 uses the 2000 file format by default. Saving databases and projects in Access 2002 format is optional.


Macro Security and Jet “Sandbox” Mode

The first change you notice when opening a new or existing Access database or data project is a macro security warning dialog that appears if the database or project contains Access macros or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) code (see Figure 1.1). The warning is similar to that of other Office members that use VBA as their programming language. Click Yes to enable running an Access application with unsigned code.
