If you right click the .ldb file, select Open With, then select choose the program you want to open with and navigate to Notepad. When it opens in Notepad, you should see the name or names of the people that have the database open.

Sometimes Access will randomly lock your database (creates a .lck file in same directory). Doesn't have to be another user in it at all. Try restarting your computer, then go to that directory and if you find a .lck file, delete it. Then try again to open your database file.

I need to perform access database repair

The repair method attempts to recover only the tables, indexes and queries in the database. Do not attempt to repair damaged forms, reports, macros and modules. Before executing the Compact and Repair tool, please ensure the following condition:

1. Do not Open Access database must closed
2. Sufficient storage space available - minimum double in size of your Access database on that Disk.
3. Close the .mdb file related to .ldb file before you delete the .ldb file.
4. Then Run the Compact and Repair tool

Hello I use verifone PCCharge, when I turn it on , an error message pops : "Password backup update failed.Shutting down PCCharge payment server"

PCCharge uses Access database, which is stored in .mdb file. Locate this file. Mine was in C:\Program Files\PCCW\PCCW.mdb.

- Back up this file.

- In the same folder where you found the database, there should be a program called VISDATA.exe. Double click on it to start it.

- Go to File > Repair Database, and point it to your database file (pccw.mdb).

- It will ask you if you want to open db, say no.

- Go to File > Compact Database, and point it to your database file.

- It will ask you if you want to compact to 2.0 or 7.0. I was told to use 2.0.

- It will ask you if you want to replace database, say yes.

- For encrypt, choose No.

- For open, say No.

- Close VISDATA.exe

- Try running PC Charge now.

- If it still gives you trouble, and if you don't mind losing all your history, move the pccw.mdb file out of PC Charge folder (C:\Program Files\PCCW\). Keep it somewhere else for backup, just get it out of PC Charge folder. Now, start PC Charge again. A new database will be created.

What is IBMDirector.mdb and IBMDirector.ldb? what is use for and how to removed?? Thank you!!

Anything that ends with .mdb belongs to MS Access and is a database file.

The IDMB is a massive database that deals with tracking movie information.

The ldb file signifies the database was opened at one point, and if not open now, was not cleanly closed.

You should be able to safely delete both of those files if you do not use the database.

Delete the .ldb file and then the .mdb file.

Remove error 0*80040e09 cannot update

When putting files up on your hosted site (or on your own server), make sure the file and the directory have the proper writes to Read/Write/Create. A special file called the .LDB file must be created and if it can't a ReadOnly status could be issued. It's a file that contains the names of the users currently accessing the MDB file. It stands for Lock Database. 
If you are running on Windows add these attributes, if it's linux (not sure why you'd use MDB on a LINUX box, but it would be chmod +777.

Access problem

see if the LDB file still exist and delete it...

Whenever you open an Access database, a file with the same name as the database and an extension of LDB will be opened automatically. For example if you open Northwind.mdb in the samples directory of your Access/Office installation, a file called Northwind.ldb will be generated. This new file keeps track of users and the objects that require some form of locking in the database. When all users have exited gracefully from the database, the LDB file is closed down and deleted.

thanks for rating

Ms Access

Do you have permission to do so?

If so:

It is likely that your network administrator has some tool to either delete
the file or, else, boot users out of it so that you can delete it.

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80040e09'

This worked for me in a similar situation; make a copy of the .mdb file in the same folder. Delete the original .mdb file and rename the copy with the name you used for the original. This should get rid of the read-only aspect. Good luck.
