Open LDB File

The main function of LDB files is to prevent two people from editing the files at the same time, within a Microsoft Access database.

Access databases are usually multi-user, and if a file is open by more than one user and both are trying to make changes to the file at the same time, the file could become corrupted and data may be lost.

The LDB file prevents this from happening by locking the file when a user already has it open through the object that calls the database.

The LDB file must be in the same folder as the original file and with the same name, but the LDB extension is assigned to the file instead of the MDB extension.

After the user with the edit-enabled file has closed the file, the lock is removed from the file and another user can open the edit-enabled version.

To open or use an LDB file you must have the appropriate program installed, which in this case is Microsoft Access.
