Database Save As After Adding Fields and Tabs

Ver 11

 

I followed the help instructions to save a copy of a database that has had fields added and different layouts created.  The instructions said to save as and select a create an empty database with a new name.

 

But when I opened the new database the new fields, tabs, and layouts were not there ... or were they?  Do I need to do something else to see them?

Custom layouts aren't included in the empty copy save as, you need to manually copy them from the layout folder of the source database,
