Creating a duplicate database

I would like to duplicate an existing database - but - without any of the contacts from the existing database.

 

Can someone please help with the process?

 

Thanks

Re: Creating a duplicate database

Will it create a similar folder/file structure as if a new database - that is, will a new .pad + .adf + .alf be created?

 

Thanks

Yes but you will need to copy any custom layouts, reports, and templates.

Re: Creating a duplicate database

I have a custom layout I use for the original database.

 

Would I just copy that layout to the new "Layouts" folder and then select it?

 

Thanks.
