ArcGis does not see a gdb someone sent me. I have Gis 9.3 & the gdb could have been created w/ a newer version. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi Ken,

I would ask the user that sent you the geodatabase to create a new geodatabase using the Create File GDB tool.  With this tool they can specify a specific version of the geodatabase, i.e. (9.2, 9.3. 10.0, etc).  Have them specify 9.3 and then copy/paste the data to this geodatabase.
