updateRow Blows

I am trying to update a date field if it is NULL.  Everything works but updateRow

I am typing it because the code is not on this network

import arcpy
from arcpy import env

env.workspace = "d:/IdeProjects"

mypath = "d:/Ideprojects/Defworkspace/DefGDB.mdb"

gdb_tobe_moded = mypath +"/fdmag"

cur = arcpy.UpdateCursor(gdb_tobe_moded)

fields = arcpy.ListFields(gdb_tobe_moded)

for row in cur:
   for field in fields:
       if field.name == "REPORT_DATE":
           # Save the current report date
            svrpt = row.getValue(field.name)

        if field.name == "INCIDENT_DT":
            if row.getValue(field.name) == None:
                 print "value stays"
del row
del cur

If I comment out the updateRow it works but nothing is changed.  If I leave it in it blows.
Traceback ...
File ID myfile
File ...*** arcobbjects.py
in line 102, in updateRow

return convertArcObjectToPythonObject(self._arc_object.UpdateRow(*gp_fixargs(args)))
RuntimeError: ERROR 999999:  Error executing Function
Cannot open database ' '. It may be a database that you application recognizes, or it may be corrupt

Any Help?
