    Forms are stored in the tables' support files. You can select each report or other layout in the control panel and Right click and choose, Copy To.

    For the code, right click in the blank area of the code tab and choose Export Scripts and Functions. Switch to the other database and Import.
    There can be only one.

    If you copy tables and their support files then you don't need to copy the layouts separately.

    You can copy tables in Windows Explorer or you can select each table in the Alpha controlpanel, right click, choose Duplicate.
