first let me thank you for the quick reply.
i downloaded that patch and it still wouldnt work.
when i try to access the database i still get the same sequence of error messages.
we had our domain blow up and we had to recreate the server from scratch. the database and all other shared information is stored on a seperate partition of which the other databases we use are intact and are not affected.
only this particular database is "corrupted"
from a microsoft backup i restored the database from a month ago but the same issues are happening. i am begining to wonder if when the database is created that it somehow incorporates the file path, in this case \\eserver\db dan\dbagain\ into the properties and this is what is causing the issue.

How did you make your backup? How many files do you have with the database name? There should be about 25 with the same name with different extensions.

this is how the file looks on the server
this is how the file looks as i restored it locally
i can see there are a few files missing, but will wait until told otherwise to add files to each other and see if that can work or will cause more problems

The local version appears to be complete but the server version is missing at least one critial file.

You can't mix and match database files. I checked the list of files and about all you have on the server is the name and address information so database repair wouldn't help. Your best bet is to backup to local database and restore it on the server and share that database.

the local copy is giving me the same errors though
these are the files that are on the local copy of the db. it has to be a rights issue somewhere but for the life of me i can not figure it out

Can you open the ACT! demo database on the local workstation? If so then you have dameage to your database that would require sending it to a repair service. Our repair service will do a free evaluation and estimate.
