Gotcha.  I've attached a script file that should allow you to determine what format the database is in.  What you need to do is save it, right-click it and choose Edit.  It should open in a text editor such as Notepad.  You will see a line toward the top that says "PUT DATABASE PATH HERE".  Replace that with the path to the database in question, save the file and double-click it.  Within a few seconds you should receive a message box telling you what version your DB is.
