QBE table does not exist

I'm tryiing to run a qbe query.  This is something that was created by a programmer that no longer works here and I'm not very familar with them.  

I'm trying to open the qbe query in Database Desktop.  I get a message that says "Table does not exsit".  I opened the .qbe file in word pad and both tables in the .qbe file exist.  

What could be the problem?

Here's the .qbe file:

Query
ANSWER: :PRIV:ANSWER.DB

FileA.db | LPEIntCde | LPEName | LPEOptName | LPEAddr2 | LPE3City | LPE3State |
Insert     | _join1    | _join2  | _join3     | _join4   | _join5   | _join6    |

FileA.db | LPE3Zip |
              | _join7  |

PM001.db | LPEIntCde | LPEName | LPEOptName | LPEAddr2 | LPE3City |
                 | _join1    | _join2  | _join3     | _join4   | _join5   |

PM001.db | LPE3State | LPE3Zip |
                 | _join6    | _join7  |

EndQuery

I'm not familiar with QBE so this is just a guess then.
if there are any parameters in there then that might be the problem, e.g. ":PRIV" looks like a paramater to me - Delphi might be programmed to replace that with a value at runtime - it seems then that ":ANSWER.DB" could also be a parameter. - perhaps the programmer gets the first line to be generated according to two parameters.
...just a guess.

Just remove "ANSWER: :PRIV:ANSWER.DB" line and try again.

is there an alias in the BDE admin that points to the directory containing the files FileA.db and PM0001.db ?
the BDE uses this to determine where the files are located

usual the qbe-syntax came with the paradox for dos frontend in the early 90ties

this entry
 "ANSWER: :PRIV:ANSWER.DB"
tells that the result should be stored in a table named answer.db in the privatedir

my only guess why this won't work is:

the workdie :WORK: did not contain the tables, so my advice would be

select as workdirectory the directory where the tables resides
