Hi Gurus,

I was trying to create a new database with a cold backup of another database, when I say Startup
force it gives an error saying that the dB name in the header doesnot match for the control file. I
copied all the files from the cold backup to the appropriate locations for the new database.
Can somebody suggest what or how should I go about this, appreciate your help.

Thanks in Advance.

The database is on windows NT.
