Okay, I can see my database but it has become unattached from SQL.  I tried to attach it, but it says it's in use by another person or program.  Rebooting didn't help.  Also tried to stop SQL services and copy file .. .same error.  Any ideas?

thanks in advance.

Refresh the display in Enterprise Manager and then check each of the database properties to check that it hasn't already been attached as a different database name.
