I want to test some code for inserting items into a list, but I don't want to insert the items into a list that has production data. So I'd like to make another list that has the same column names and definitions as this production list. I have Sharepoint Designer access to the site, and I'm also familiar with using Sharepoint Web Services to make changes. Is there a way to use either of these approaches (or anything else) to make a test copy of a list, structure only?

Make a list template, create a new list based on that template.
