Hello, 

I have 17 polygon layers and each layer has roughly 8000 polygons.

What I want to do is to make a copy of polygon layers but only 
Object_ID, Shape Length and Shape Area  fields should  be transferred
and all other fields should not be transferred to a new feature class. 
Is there any way to perform such an operation ?
Regards

Object id will likely change.  If you want the original value, add an attribute and calculate = OID.

There area couple ways to do this:  create a new empty feature class and either load or append the original data to it.  Or turn off all the extraneous attributes in the original data and export.

Hello, 

I'm sorry for not responding your message earlier. I turned off all  extraneous  attributes and this method worked for me. Thank you.
