Trying to create DDF files through pcc/sqldm 8.6.

Trying to create DDF files through pcc/sqldm 8.6.

Trying to create DDF files through pcc/sqldm 8.6.

Hi all,
I have bunch of btr files and I'm trying to create ddf files through PCC/sqlDM 8.6

These are the steps I took:

under my my machine ->Database(engine), I did it right-click to create new database.

I enter "mydatabase" without quotes in the Name field

In directory field, I have tried to point to either of the data files on my machine (client) and also server machine and I get error message

   Cannot retrieve database names. You do not have
  sufficient access rights for the operation.

First of all, mydatabase is a new database that I'm TRYING to create, so this doesn't make
sense to me.  Second of all, I'm also one of the administrators on my machine, I don't if
this mean something....

I'm stuck and need help, guys.

I would be very..very greatful of any advice you may have.

RE: Trying to create DDF files through pcc/sqldm 8.6.

First, it's trying to retrieve the list of other databases on the system to make sure you don't create a duplicate.  Also, and this applies to remote data, you must have Admin rights to create a database.  
You said you had data local and a client, but do you actually have a WOrkgroup Engine or just the client?  If it's just the client, then you won't be able to create databases anyway because you need an engine.
