Now I have come to the time where I want to put my data into a folder and give it to my client. They will also have a GIS program. However, I am wondering if anyone has any tips on this process. For example, shall I save the data as layer files? And in this case must I also include the database?
Also any other cool ideas would be greatly appreciated. I would like them to really be able to use the data easily and understand it fully.

So I've used Arc speak here but it should translate to other systems. If you were to save the layer files then this is just the same as saving the mxd—yes you still need to include the data sources (database/shp files) as a layer file just stores symbolgy and where to find the source.
Hope this helps.

This script is designed to make it easier to copy an MXD, SXD or 3DD document onto a CD or DVD, by automatically copying all the required datasets into a single location, and changing the layers in the project to point to the new location.
Feature layers and tables will be copied to a new file geodatabase, while raster layers will be copied to the same directory.
Could worth a try!

Nice find François—thanks! This could be a great help. Now it just needs an option to be able to clip and reproject the data to the mxd's layout frame at the same step—that's right we're never happy.
Dont worry, I had the same thought. It can be done with ArcPublisher though, right?
