 Transfering Layout from 1 DB to Another DB
Is there any software solution to move a layout created in 1 Database
to another without losing the spacing/fields/etc.

Create a new blank layout in the destination database.  Using the size
option from the Show menu, determine the size of each of the layout parts
in the original database.  Create matching parts on your blank layout in
the destination database.  Select All and group in your original database.
Note the position of the grouped items in the size box.  Copy and then
paste in your destination database.  Adjust the grouped items to the same
position.  Un-group and then fix any field references that didn't transfer
automatically (no matching field names in the destination database).

I generally draw a large box around the whole layout and then push it into
the top left corner, select all ang group, select all copy, go to the new
layout and paste, then Ungroup and delete the large box.  This makes sure
that everything is in the same position on the new layout...

Yeah, me too, but I was just trying to limit the number of steps in my
response.  Probably would have been just as easy to explain it this way.
