No, I did not. I don't use RM as my primary genealogy program so it isn't something I do with the RM database files.
However, I am happy to report that with a restart of the computer, I was able to open the newly created RM database in RM. The few changes I had made were in place and the database appears to be fine. So, whatever the glitch was that caused RM to shut down abruptly and unable to open the newly created database, restarting the computer cleared it.
Thank you for your interest and comment.
