Access 2003 seperating .ldb and back end

Concerning an Access 2003 DB, is it possible to specify in what folder the locked file (.ldb) is created? Would it be possible to have the .ldb file in a readwrite folder, and have the back end in a read-only folder? Thanks in advance

No.  And remember that Access/JET has to be able to delete the LDB file when the last mdb is closed, if more than FE is connected.

JET is automatically always going to create the LDB in the same folder as the MDB.
