Cannot open FileMaker Pro Advanced File


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version


Description of the issue

We have been using FileMaker Pro Advanced on our 4 Macbook computers for years at my business and this problem has never occurred. We usually open recent for our large database of contacts but as of today, it will not open.

I open recent OR just double click on the actual file in my finder window, I get a notice that says:

"Mailing_GOOD_06_2010.fp7" is currently in use and could not be opened. If the file is shared, you can use the Open Remote command to open the file on the network. (If you've opened the file before, check the Open Recent menu.)

I also have gotten another notice that says:

"Mailing_GOOD_06_2010.fp7" could not be opened. Either the host is not available, or the file is not available on that host."

Everyone in the office has FileMaker Pro off on their computers

How can I fix this so that we can get the file to open?! Please help!
