' Copy the field structure of a Recordset to a new Recordset.''

Thanks to Robert Gelb for this suggestion.Function CloneFieldStructure(rs As ADODB.Recordset) As ADODB.Recordset    Dim fld As ADODB.Field    Set CloneFieldStructure = New ADODB.Recordset    ' create a set of fields with same attributes    For Each fld In rs.Fields        CloneFieldStructure.Fields.Append fld.name, fld.Type, fld.DefinedSize, _            fld.Attributes        'special handling for data types with numeric scale & precision        Select Case fld.Type            Case adNumeric, adDecimal                With CloneFieldStructure                    .Fields(.Fields.Count - 1).Precision = fld.Precision                    .Fields(.Fields.Count - 1).NumericScale = fld.NumericScale                End With        End Select        NextEnd Function
