Begin as if you were going to import a table, form, etc.
When you get to the Import Objects dialog box, select Options >> and click the Import/Export Specs check box.

FWIW, You can also go the low tech way and copy the records between the system tables MSysIMEXSpecs and MSysIMEXColumns if you want to do it programatically, but I would use the interface option as cap mentioned if your just doing it manually.  It's simpler and quicker.
