[ic] Database Recreation ...

Greetings All,

I have searched the archives for an answer and maybe I am not searching for 
the right words, but I can not seem to find a way to "force" database 

I have a file called userdb.txt that I would like to become my userdb.  At 
one time it did.

When I first placed this file in the CATALOG/products/ directory it created 
a .gdbm file called userdb.gdbm.  I then deleted this file (I am currently 
in learning/testing mode) thinking that it would automatically recreate 
when I tried to do anything with the user database.

Now when I look in the CATALOG/products/ directory all I see is userdb.txt, 
products.gdbm and products.txt.  Why is my userdb.gdbm file not 
reappearing.  Am I assuming correctly, that if this file is not here, that 
the userdb database is not there either?

I guess the bottom line question is .. how do I force the creation / 
recreation of this database?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
