Read Error 2950 by Stephen K @ Thu 3/8
Hi guys,
Im using Access 2007. Everytime I try to use the action set value, i get the error message 2950. The problem is my database is in fact in a Trusted Location folder.
So what gives?

Reply from Alex Hedley:

Error message when you run a macro that calls a VBA function in an Access 2007 database: "Action Failed Error Number: 2950"
MS Article

Did you try both suggestions?

This issue occurs if the database is not trusted by Access 2007. By default, Access 2007 opens databases that are not trusted in Disabled mode. In Disabled mode, executable content is disabled.

If you trust the author of the Access 2007 database, and if you want to enable the database, use one of the following methods.
Method 1: Enable the database for the current session
When you use this method, Access 2007 enables the database until you close the database. To enable the database for the current session, follow these steps:

    On the Message Bar, click Options.
    In the Microsoft Office Security Options dialog box, click Enable this content, and then click OK.

Note You must repeat these steps every time that you open the database.
Method 2: Move the database to a trusted location
To do this, follow these steps:

    Determine trusted locations to which you can move the database. To do this, follow these steps:
        Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Access Options.
        Click Trust Center, and then click Trust Center Settings under Microsoft Office Access Trust Center.
        Click Trusted Locations, and then use one of the following procedures:
            Note the paths of the trusted locations that are listed.
            Add a new trusted location. To do this, click Add new location, and then specify the path of the location that you want to add.
    Move the Access 2007 database to the trusted location that you want.

I have deleted a record from a look up table and the result is that when I try to enter a new record that uses that table, I get error 2950 - any ideas.
Many thanks

I have built a database in Access 2007, managing bookings and staff allocation for a disability service. Forms driven by macros select parameters for reports. Last night the macros all ceased to work, with error 2950. The Microsoft site said that this is a security issue and to place the database in a trusted location and enable macros. This was all already in place and the database has worked well for months- nothing within the database had been changed when the errors started occuring. I have patched the database back together, by importing queries, forms, reports, macros etc from a back up and the tables from the current version, but I am anxious to avoid a repeat of the whole problem. Any advice would be appreciated!!
