The Microsoft Jet database engine could not find the object “Databases.”  Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the pathway name correctly.

Likely Corruption.  Are you able to do a Compact & Repair?
What version of Access is this?

Please not the period in the error message.  "Databases."  Try again without the period (or dot) at the end.

I understand the . but I cannot open the file to change it. I get this error message when I open the file.

I cannot do a compact and repair. I get the same error message.

Should be access 2003.

How can I change the "."

It appears to be corrupted. I tried JetComp.exe and no luck.
If you have a recent backup (??) ... revert to that. Otherwise, I highly recommend this repair service:

http://www.everythingaccess.com/accessdatabaserepair.htm

IF ... it can be repaired, then this is the service that is likely able to do so.  Note they are in the UK, so account for the Time zone.

Sorry about that.  Please ... make *frequent* backups, frequent defined as ... whatever time such that you don't want to lose what you just did.  It's so easy.  In Windows Explorer ... a quick Control C, Control V will instantly make a Copy.  Or, hold the Control key down and just drag your db to a blank area below the last file ... instant copy.

There is a good chance that recovery service can fix the issue.

You can go up from the file to the folder, and then higher yet.
If shadow copies aren't turned on for the drive, then you are SOL, but maybe you'll get lucky
