Chapter 2. Developing Multiuser Applications > Understanding the .LDB File

Understanding the .LDB File

Every database opened for shared use has a corresponding .LDB file, a locking file created to store computer and security names and to place byte-range locks on the recordset. The .LDB file always has the same name and location as the databases whose locks it's tracking. Access deletes the .LDB file when the last user exits the database file. Twice, Access does not delete the .LDB file:

  • When the database is marked as damaged (politically correct term)

  • When the last user out doesn't have delete rights in the folder with the database and .LDB files
