Cannot open shared database

We have just moved our offices. When the computers where set back up again, I could not open the ACT! database that is stored on another computer in our network, it shows up: The database could  not be accessed. In order to access this database, check your network connection and verify that your database server is available etc etc!! I have restarted SQL, created another .PAD, nothing is working right now. Any ideas? Thanks!

Sonia,

 

Welcome to the community. I have provided a link below that should help with the error message that you are getting. Follow the instructions and if that does not help let us know.

 

Article 19640

Re: Cannot open shared database

I did run through this earlier and got the same message.

 

I just tried opening the PAD file in notepad and changed the IP address - it now works!!!
