Database path

Is there a way of knowing the path for an open database while in ACT?  I know there are all sorts of places I can tell it what to open,  set up defaults, etc.  But, I want to know specifically what is open regardless of what I told ACT.

Help | About | Database Information
At the top you'll have the PAD file and if you scroll down in the Information box, you'll get the locations of database, log file, supplemental files and last backup

If you are using ACT! 2012, go to File > Open/Share Database. The database you in at the moment will be at the top of the list along with its filepath.

Note: Effective 6/1/13, Sage no longers provides support for the Act! software. This is now provided by Swiftpage.

Nope, Premium 2011. The previous solution woked OK. Now I can see what happened, Don't have a clue why. I'm putting up another post to describe that. It's rather long.
