Could not find a database called....

Hi Everyone!
 
I'm having a problem opening a few databases in version 9 (2007).   When I click Open Database it gives me a list of the databases to choose from.  When I select one I get the "Could not find a database called....." error message.  I looked at the file folder and see both a .PAD and .ADF files but no .ALF files.  Assuming this is the problem, is there a way to recreate it?    If this is being caused by another problem what can I do to get it working?
 
Thanks,
Bob

If you have lost the ALF files, I think you need to submit the database to Sage database repair to have it rebuilt

I think you're right Mike.   I called them this morning and that is what they said.  Pretty expensive too!
 
I think we're going to see how many names were in there and how much of a paper trail we have before proceeding with a repair.
 
Thanks for the reply

No backups you can start with?
 
When you get it fixed you'll have to create a backup routine
