Applies the formatting of 'template' to 'text'

Sample Input:
FormatLike ( "Title"; Templates::Heading1)
Sample Output:
Title (using the same formatting as the text in the field Templates::Heading1)


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

For applying a single format (color, style, etc.) to a field (either with a calc or an auto-enter replacement calc), regardless of how the user formats the text.

Idea is to define the overriding style in another field using FileMaker controls, rather than hard-coding the style into your calc.
