What is LDB file?

LDB file format is used by Microsoft Access (versions 2007 and later) software. LDB is a locking file which purpose is prevent any changes to be made to the database by more than one user simultaneously – it prevents accidental overwrites of the edited file.

LDB file guarantees that only one user can access the database at the given time to prevent data corruption or loss. Newer Microsoft Access versions replaced LDB with LACCDB format.

LDB file creation, folder localtion, and name

LDB file is generated automatically by the program upon opening database file (MDB file) and automatically removed when the file has been closed. LDB files are stored in the same folder and under the same name as the edited database.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the LDB file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the LDB file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the LDB file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the LDB file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the LDB file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
