Share design Layout

We are two users of Sage 2011 and work in the same type of business. I have a design layout which was created in 2008 and has been updated a little since then. My friend wants to use the same layout. I copied the .cly file to a disk and we installed it in Database > Layouts on her machine. She views all of the fields and it looks fine but she cannot type anything into the spaces to add information. We have tried many times but she can't use the design layout even though it's there. Can anyone suggest what we are not doing to get this working? Both our programs are set to Share

Re: Share design Layout

Layouts are database specific. You either need to relink the fields in that database to the layout ore save an empty copy of your database so the layout matches.
