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

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

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.
