Clone Mystery in FM Pro 9



I have been extending the capabilities of a school database by development work

on an sparsely populated copy while the original is being used. The program has several

main layouts, contacts, families, activies etc. selected by a group of buttons working

on the Radiobutton system - only one works at a time.


   When I attempted to populate my improved copy I made a clone and then imported

records from the working original.I found that the clone had lost access to one of the

layouts - that for contacts. Button pushing from the home layout did nothing.  I repeated

this attempt twice more - still no access to the contacts layout when working with a clone. 


  So, made a full copy of my development program and used the Records>Delete all Records

action to delete all the records in the main layouts. Effectively making a clone the slow way.

This time I could populate the contacts with records by importing.


Has anyone else struck this?
