data files

then you can add a data file

give it a name and save it under my documents

and set it as default and say ok to the message

Then check outlook and you should be able to get into outlook

So you will see there will be a new data file on the left and and inaccessable one below it. The next step would be to try and find out where the other data file has gone. It could of been deleted or might be on a network share that is unavailable now.
