Convert XP to 2003

Hi,
We're running an Access 2002 front end (SQL Server back end).  The parent 
company is migrating to 2003 and I've run some tests on converting the 2002 
front end to 2003.  When I start the converted database, I get security 
warnings on the VBA code that runs in the startup form.  (The code is just 
setting a few text box values with dates and company info.)  I've been 
searching MSDN and TechNet for articles on migrating to 2003, but have been 
unable to find anything that contains guidelines for converting from 2002 to 
2003.

I was hoping to get some help on where I can find some info, perhaps on the 
Microsoft web site, that details the changes in 2003 that developers need to 
be aware of, especially with security issues.  Any help would be appreciated!

Access 2003 didn't introduce any new file format, so there isn't really any 
'conversion' for anyone to write about. There is certainly plenty to be said 
on the subject of 'macro' security, code signing and digital certificates, 
however. Try using those keywords instead, and you'll get plenty of hits - 
here's a link to some search results using these keywords - the Smart Access 
article is a good starting point for an over-view of the issues. Also check 
out the Google newsgroup archives for lots of posts on this issue.

Brendan:

Sorry for not responding sooner, but I've been busy on some other projects.  
Thank you very much for the info.  I checked the Smart Access article.  It's 
been very helpful.  I'll try the keyword suggestions as well.

Thanks again!

Converting Numerical values to Words
I am fairly new to the ins and outs of Microsoft Access 2003 but have been able to work through all of my problems thus far except one.

This stores the number in a table which I then reference many times in queries as well as reports.

Excel 2003 Print Issue

Outlook 2003
We're on Exchange 2003 and have started rolling out Outlook 2003 in place of Outlook 2000. In Outlook 2003 by default all folders come up grouped by day and with solid lines between the messages. Everyone hates these "features" and has made a point of telling me so. Yes, each individual folder can be changed back through the user interface but that's a non-solution for 100 users that have an average of 25 folders each plus the 50 or so public folders as well. Is there any way to change this default behavior in Outlook 2003 so that all folders come up without the solid lines...
