I have a database I've been using accessed from a shortcut on the desktop. It quit responding from the shortcut. I checked the properties and everything seemed fine, but it wouldn't open. The My Documents window shows the large "mdb" file and also another 1 kb file of the same name with a "ldb" extension. I tried deleting this "ldb" file, but got an error message saying the program was in use by another person, which is not possible. However, I can open the program through the recent documents in Access. Any thoughts as to what the problem is or how to correct it? Thanks!
