Open the block where the call is being made to your FB. The changes you made in the interface of the FB mean that it now displays an error and the DB name is in red.

Goto File > Check and update accesses.

This will re-create your DB with the new interface without the need to delete it.

You need experience to avoid making mistakes. Guess where experience comes from....
