I am in the process of upgrading to Access 2003. This application will be distributed only within our organization, but there will be 15 different field offices. Access 2003 seems to have added security that requires digital signatures and assigning ourselves as "trusted" publishers or a warning message is displayed at the medium security level.

I am leary of setting the security level to low, which would eliminate the warning message.

Briefly looking at Verisign, it appears it will cost something on the range of $400 per year for a digital signature. That is a bit steep for our little company. We are not commercial software developers.

How do others handle the security warning in Access 2003? Is there an easier solution to this problem?
