I am creating my own calendar database now that I have completed the seminar. I created my forms and I tried to remove/delete the custom layout that the form wizard creates as shown in the seminar by going to Design view, and clicking on the Arrange tab. I see a button for Remove Layout but it is grayed out and therefore cannot be selected. Can you tell me what I need to do so that I can remove the layout?

The 2007/2010/2013 Layout is AWFUL. I hate it. That's why in my courses I recommend you create your forms and reports from scratch using Form Design or Report Design. It takes more time and effort to remove that dumb layout than it does to just add the fields you want manually in Design View.
To remove it... go to Design View. Select ALL of the controls (CTRL-A). Right-click > Layout > Remove Layout.
Or save some time and just start over from scratch. :)
