Why am I getting VBA Macro security warning when there are no Macr

    EVERY database I open produces the following error bar:

    Security Warning Certain content in the database has been disabled

    When I click on Options... It says:

    VBA Macro
    Access has disabled potentially harmful content in this database.

    It does list the database I opened as the offending one. The problem is this
    occurs for every database I open. Every one was created by me, and none of
    them have any VBA code (at least not that I added). So I understand what the
    source of the error/warning is. I can either enable the content through the
    Options button or close the warning keeping the content disabled, and the it
    doesn't matter, since, as I mentioned, there's no VBA code in these databases.

    There is an Acrobat Add-In installed by Acrobat 9 Pro. Might this be the
    cause? Is there some way I can fix this?

    Thanks, that does remove the warning messages. However, it doesn't explain
    why Access is giving me VBA warning messages for databases that don't contain
    any VBA. Is this a known bug?
