I will be conducting a survey study very similar to one I've done
before.  I want to use the same datafile structure:  the questions,
datatypes, and checks will be nearly identical.  Is there an easy way to
produce a new set of .rec, .qes, and .chk files, replicas of the old
ones, but with no records?  Then I can make some small modifications
before entering the new data.  I'd hate to half to do it all again from
