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.
