Is there a way to copy several formula fields to create new (still formula) fields?

  • 1.  Is there a way to copy several formula fields to create new (still formula) fields?

    Posted 11 days ago
    based on specific fields, I need to create the formula fields x month from Jan 2017 until Dec 2021 (for now :) 
    I've done them for 2017 (and it took a while :) )
    Is there a way to copy all the 12 existing for 2017 to replace 2017 references with 2018 ones afterward?
    Thanks in advance

    If you are asking if there is an automatic way to create formula fields, then answer is no.  You will need to edit the existing fields or copy them to make new fields.

    But you may want to consider redesigning your app so as not to need hard coded fields like that.

    If you wanted to rethink that structure on this Forum, you can describe your setup.
