STRANGE database will not open

This is strange, I have a database called "Chuck",  that will not open, however my secondary database called "Band Directors"  will open without any problems.  My main database, "Chuck",  keeps giving the error that the IP address could not be resolved, verifying the PC computer is available on the network that it has the correct...... this is a typical error, but I don't receive this error with the other database"Band Directors".  I have act on another computer and I copied the same data base"Chuck", over to that laptop and got the same error message, I tried using the Act Diagnostics to repair the Database "Chuck" after that it did open but the format is lost and some data.  How can I get the database "Chuck" to open without losing any data?

 

Thanks,

Re: STRANGE database will not open

Sounds like a corrupted or wrong PAD file. Try opening the database with the ADF opetion to force rebuild of the PAD file.
