What is the easiest way to clean all data from a record type?

What is the easiest way to clean all data from a record type?

Call a function that cleans the fields and returns the now-empty record back to the testcase, this is essentially done by resetting the values.

[-] type TEAMS is record
    [ ] integer iYear
    [ ] string sCity
    [ ] string sName
    [ ] string sSport
[ ] 
[-] TEAMS CleanAllData(TEAMS myTeam)
    [ ] myTeam.iYear=0
    [ ] myTeam.sCity=""
    [ ] myTeam.sName=""
    [ ] myTeam.sSport=""
    [ ] return myTeam
[ ] 
[-] testcase CleanTeams() appstate none
    [ ] TEAMS myTeam
    [ ] myTeam.iYear=1967
    [ ] myTeam.sCity="Boston"
    [ ] myTeam.sName="Red Sox"
    [ ] myTeam.sSport="Baseball"
    [ ]  
    [ ] print ("This team is the "+str(myTeam.iYear)+" "+myTeam.sCity+" "+myTeam.sName+" "+myTeam.sSport+" team")
    [ ] 
    [ ] myTeam=CleanAllData(myTeam)
    [ ] print ("This should only show a zero in iYear "+str(myTeam.iYear)+" "+myTeam.sCity+" "+myTeam.sName+" "+myTeam.sSport)
    [ ] 
    [ ] myTeam.iYear=2003
    [ ] myTeam.sCity="Pikeville"
    [ ] myTeam.sName="Bears"
    [ ] myTeam.sSport="Football"
    [ ] 
    [ ] print ("This team is the "+str(myTeam.iYear)+" "+myTeam.sCity+" "+myTeam.sName+" "+myTeam.sSport+" team")
    [ ]
