Duplicate Database

I am trying to send an empty copy of my database to a co-worker who has just purchased Premium 2010. I do have premium 2010. I followed the instructions and it has made a new database but when I try to attach the blank copy to an email it says that the file is larger than 20mb. Why would a blank file be over 20mb? Then I looked at the file created and it is not a duplicate of the way my file tabs and fields look. Would anyone be able to help create a blank duplicate of my file design, please?

Re: Duplicate Database

It is that large because it includes the datbase, reports, letters and more.  Generally about 10 mb is the limit for many email systems. There are services like which allow you to send larger files. You will need to copy the layouts seperately and drop them in. Keep in mind, if you intend to share information with your coworker, you should set up sync and not just send a copy of your database.
