no need to relate to the ldb
the way to delete mdb is:

data1.recordset.movefirst
do until not data1.recordset.eof
  data1.recordset.delete
  data1.recordset.movenext
loop

if u want to delete a file no matter the extansion use
kill(filename)

IF YOU just want to reset the mdb - open all tables as u seen before and do the
same procedure to all tables!
