Not a HanDBase 3.0 database

I'm sorry, but I tried searching for this subject, but the search window pulled up thousands of references, but only to each individual word I typed in the search field, and I didn't find reference to my request.

In any case I just installed the MAC desktop version and in all but a couple of my data files I keep getting the message "ERROR: File selected is not a HanDBase 3.0 database"
I know I've seen references to this before but I sure couldn't find them. So can you please help and remind me how to fix this issue?

Oh, I almost forgot to mention, the files in question open fine with the MAC Desktop Demo I downloaded earlier.

Thanks, Bob Bowers

Sincere apologies for not seeing your post before now.

Make sure you are opening the database file, not the custom form. The custom form will have "_HDF" in the title.
