FM 12 Server Advanced - File Uploaded to Database but unable to open

Your post

Hello all and thank you for taking the time to read this.

I have Google searched and searched within the forums to find an answer to this question but to no avail.  I had a DB loaded into FM Server that was working fine for about 6 months and I had to reinstall FM Server due to a non-repairable issue.  After I reinstalled, I noticed that the DB showed a status of closed.  I tried to manually open it via the Actions table on the Administration/Databases section and it would never change state.  I removed it from the DB list and tried to re-upload it.  Upon upload, it stated that "File upload successful but unable to open database." 

So I went to a month old backup and uploaded it just fine.  We are currently using that version but have lost all data entered over the last month because of this.  Is there any way to get the "corrupted" original DB back open to export the content I need?
