Opening LACCDB files

Did your computer fail to open a LACCDB file? We explain what LACCDB files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your LACCDB files.

What is a LACCDB file?

Files that contain the .laccdb file extension are files that have been created by the Microsoft Access database software application. Only the 2007 and later versions of Access program use the .laccdb file format.

The LACCDB files are locking files that allow multiple users to share the same Access file without the risk of accidental overwrites or deletions. When an ACCDB file is opened and another user tries to open the same file, a locked version of the file will be created. This allows the user to see the file but prevents them from making changes. This locked file is saved with the .laccdb file suffix. The locked file is then deleted after a user closes the file within the database program.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
