    Database error, file damaged, error code: 3

      Hi,

       

      I have what I believe is an InDesign CS3 file. InDesign CS4, 5, and 5.5 refuse to open it. When I try to open it in CS3, I get a database error, saying the file is damaged, error code: 3.

       

      I'm sure the problem is with the file, not InDesign, since I've tried this on 2 Macs. CS3 quits before I can export to .idml.

       

      I read some earlier threads concerning this error and I tried removing the Links, but that didn't help. I also read something about editing across a network but since this is not my file I don't know how it was created and edited in the past. I'm just looking for a solution.

       

      Anyone?

       

      Thanks,

      Tina
