Using the Upsizing Wizard with Linked Jet Tables

The most common configuration for production Jet applications separates data objects into a front-end (client) .mdb file to hold application objects and a back-end .mdb file that contains only tables. Multiple users access the back-end file from a shared Windows NT/2000+ folder. You also can share the back-end file on a peer-to-peer server running Windows 98/Me, or Windows /NT Workstation/2000+ Professional. All users must have read/write permissions for the share because they must be able to write to the lock (FileName.ldb) file. Under WindowsNT/2000+, you can apply user- or group-specific write permissions to the back-end data .mdb file if the server uses the NTFS file system.

→ To review .ldb file basics, see “Jet Record-Locking Information Files”.
