keeping the same field on a standard object and a custom object in sync

We keep bumping up against the field limit on the Account Table object and are in the process of doing a major reorganization of the data. We will be migrating the data for about 50% of the fields to a custom object.


But I would like to keep some fields the same on both objects so that the data does not get entered twice and out of sync.

For instance, on the Account table we have a picklist for Internet Banking Vendor and we will have that same field on the Custom Object as well.


How do I keep them the same without manually maintaining them?

Which Edition of SFDC is your company using?  If you’re on EE or UE you might bae able to automate this using a Workflow Rule with a field update, or at the very least write a Validation Formula, or convert the Child Object field to Formula(Text).
