When you open a Microsoft Office Access 2007 database, you may receive an error with the error code number 2950. The error returns the following error message: Action Failed Error Number: 2950. This error is produced when you call a Visual Basic for Applications, or VBA, function from a macro.

One of the symptoms of this error message when you run a macro that calls a VBA function is an error that says the following: Action Failed Macro Name: <macro name> Condition: <condition> Macro Name: RunCode Arguments: <Arguments> Error Number: 2950.


Access 2007 contains a Trust Center area where database paths are added for trusted databases. Opening a database that needs to execute functions that has not been added to the Trust Center will cause the error 2950 to execute. Executable content such as a macro calling a VBA function will be disabled in a nontrusted database.


The workaround to this problem is to enable the database for the current session. When you enable the database to be trusted, Access 2007 enables the database until you close the database. You enable the database by using the Microsoft Office Security Options.
