How do I change the location that the .ldb writes to?

    I need to have an access database that either does not write the .ldb or to
    find a way to write that file within a temp directory on the c drive.

    Unfortunately you cannot control this. You cannot change where the
    file is created nor stop it from being created in a multi-user
    environment

    Actually, you can stop it from being created by opening the database as
    Read-Only and Exclusive (this can be done with command-line switches in a
    shortcut).

    Despite the sound of the "Exclusive" switch, multiple users can open the
    database this way concurrently.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
