Can I read the name of the current database's record locking
file from within code? I would expect to read something like
"MyDB.ldb"

It always is the name of your db, with an .ldb extension.
Your db's name can be found with:
CurrentDb.Name

I remember them lying around all ove4r the place
in Acewss 2.0. Msoft must-a-started cleaning them
up by A97 time. I don't see so many vestiges scattered
about. Good.

Yes, starting with Access 95, the last user to log out of the application
deletes the locking file.
