Hi Experts,

I have an extremely large table with hundreds of fields, with many of them not in use anymore, and would like to get a list of all those unused fields, and perhaps move them to a different table.

Does anybody know of a script/function that would help me in this direction, instead of having to deal with each field separately?

Thanks in advance.
