    I have an mdb file in a zip archive on my desktop and when I try and
    extract it I get Windows has blocked access to this potentially harmful
    file? I cannot find anything on this. I know how to unblock from
    Outlook but I dont' know why xp is blocking it I guess cause it has a
    bunch of vba code in it. Any ideas on how to unblock this? Thanks

    Right-click the zip file and go to properties. There will be an option to
    unblock the file there.

    Thanks, that was it, would have never thought it was on the zip file
    cause was extracting some of the files.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
