Design Layouts

I have designed a layout in Act that I want others to use on their laptops they will each have their own database as we dont share data just the process of doing things and the reporting, how do i implement this with others as I tried to copy the design onto a laptop and select it as a layout but all fields that I created are greyed out so doing something wrong, we are all using Act 2007.

Re: Design Layouts

Layouts that involve custom fields typically are database specific. Even another database that has the same fields added to it will not be able to automatically use the same layout. One option is to create the other databases by saving an empty copy of the database where the layout was created. The other option is to go into design layout and relink the layout fields to the database fields.
