    Unanswered: Open an E-mailed access file

    I e-mailed an mdb file to someone and they are unable to open it. It says something about 'Open File Security'

    "Do you want to open this file from Unknown Publisher -Access Application"


    anyone know anything about this

    or

    how I can send an access file to somebody that they will be able to open

    I usually append the file name with .txt so it slips past the filters; f.e. name it db1.mdb.txt instead of db1.mdb. Then the recipient downloads it, changes the filename back to db1.mdb, and they're ready to rock and roll.

    it did not work

    but what does work.. is when the person downloads the file... right click on it and hit 'Unlock'
