Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

Question, when you say it wont open after the database updates,

What exactly happened. DId you install, or did your mac decide to install the update to microsoft office, and was it after that update that your Outlook program would not work?

If not, please describe in detail what happened to cause this issue.
