Copying fields from one linked table to another

I have an MS Access application and one of the functions is a comparison function where I compare the Master back-end structure to another back-end.  Currently, when it sees a discrepancy, it highlights the field and I add it manually.  

I was wondering if there was a way to copy the missing field (with everything, index, type, default value etc.) from the master back-end, to the destination back-end?  They are both linked to my front-end application.
