    Copying a form to a new database

      Summary

      Copying a form to a new database

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      11.0v4

      Operating system version

      MAC OS 10.6

      Description of the issue

      Each year I receive a new data base with up-to-date information. I create a new database for each year. I have created 4 forms in last year's database. How do I copy these forms to this year's database?

          Use save a copy as... with the clone option to create a new empty copy of your databsae with all the latest design changes to it.

          But you should be making back up copies on a regular basis. Are you?

          And why start over with each new year instead of continuing to add new records (but with this year's dates) to the same file?
