    C:\TEMP\VBE

    When I use Access, it creates a folder called VBE inside my TEMP folder. When I exit Access, the folder remains. The only file it contains is MSFORMS.EXD. I assume this is a temporary subdirectory used by Access but why is it not deleted when I close Access normally?

    Re: C:\TEMP\VBE

    The file is created the first time you insert an ActiveX control into your application. They're also created for the other Office apps if you use an ActiveX control from the toolbar. There's a knowledgebase article ".Exd Files Are Created When You Insert Controls", article #Q158875, that you might want to lookup and read. It explains what's going on. The file isn't deleted because it is reused the next time you open the application. YOU can delete it, but it affects the performance of the app that contains the activeX control until the file gets recreated by the application.
