I have been working on a db for thee weeks and have been able to view it as the "customers" file in tables. Yesterday I was not able to open it. I have been told I can recover it but cannot find any recovery or recover instructions under search base.

Help

If something goes wrong while an openoffice.org document is open, OOo will, usually, automatically offer you the chance to recover the document when you next start OOo. If a document is damaged or removed by something, outside of OOo then it is gone, though you may find tools that can get the data back. For example, if you can still see the file on your hard drive, you may be able to open it in whatever programs you may have that can open a zip file - this will let you see what is in your OOo file (they are only zip archives really). From here you may be able to recover some of your data.

Returning to your backups is the best option (you have been backing up haven't you?) as this is by far the simplest and quickest way.
