    Default copying a layout from machine to machine

    Hi Folks,
    I'm working on a new set of layouts on a 'test' machine. Is there a way that I can copy one or two layouts (reports) to the main table without copying the whole table?
    Thanks,
    Trevor.

    Layouts are stored in the table/set support files.

    Data Dictionary
    .DDD
    The table's data dictionary, which contains lists of additional table objects such as Layouts (forms, browses, etc.), report designs, saved operations, field rules, and field names longer than 10 characters.

    .DDM
    Stores additional table objects such as Layouts (forms, browses, etc.), report designs, and saved operations in memo format.

    .DDX
    Contains the dictionary's index(es). Alpha Five uses the .ddx to find a specific form name or field rule or whatever is needed.
    There can be only one.

    Thanks, Stan. That's what I thought.
