Emailing a database in Act 2009

We have an employee who created a ACT database on their home computer which we now want to have access to at the office.  We have the database (.pad) file loaded onto the system here, however when we select it as the database to open an error message pops up saying "Unable to find database x.pad"

We used to do this successfully all the time with earlier versions of ACT but have been able to get it working with ACT 2009

The pad file isn't the database, only a pointer to the database. You would need to do a backup and then Restore As to move the database.
