I have a table that I want to add eight new fields to collect data applying to 2018 information.  These are similar to existing fields that apply to the records for 2017, however I want to retain the 2017 fields and have new fields for 2018.  However, when I copy the fields, the associated data held in that field is also copied (which I don't want).  Is there any way to copy I guess what you would call the field attributes without also retaining the data?

Choose your poison.

1. Create 8 brand new fields.
2. Copy the 8 fields and then use Grid Edit to blank out the data.
