Copying drop down list from a database to another

I would like basicaly to create a new database that will be a copy of the first one, without all the contacts.

If there is a way I would like to know.

 

I did create a new database and copied the contact layout, but all the custom drop down list from the origial are empty.

 

Thanks

Re: Copying drop down list from a database to another

You can use the File > Save Copy As > Empty Copy option to create a duplicate database that does not contain the data. 

 

To copy Drop-down values from one database to another: use the Tools > Define Fields > Manage Drop-Down Lists option.  You would then double click on a desired drop-down list and cilck Next to the 'Enter drop-down list values' screen, from there you can Export and Import items.
