  Sample input:
Synchronise ( field1 ; field2 )
  Sample output:
field1 contents:6
field2 contents:6

if you edit contents of a field, the other will be automatically edited.

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Both the fields must be defined as text with calculated value replaces existing value.
In this way, you can modify someone and automatically the other will be modified.
( practically it is like if you had the same duplicated field, but with different name )
