Please tell me what the .LDB file is in Access 95.  I am using VB DAO to attach to an Access 95 table. When I finish and exit my VB app, the .MDB file has an associated .LDB file which prevents me from going into design mode for my application.  Can I simply erase the .LDB file? What are the ramifications of this?

The ldb file simply keeps track of record locking/write conflict type issues. Yes, you can delete it with impunity. If Access doesn't find one in existence when the database is opened, it will automatically create one anyway.

I can't understand why it would prevent you from going into design mode for your app, though . . .

Regardless, deleting the LDB shouldn't cause any problems.
