How do I connect two picklists, one in Opportunity, one in Accounts?

I would like to connect two fields, one in Accounts, and the other in Opportunity. So if I change the opportunity field, I will have the same changed value in the Account field, and vice versa. I would like to do this with two picklists. Please help.
You will need to write a trigger on the objects that queries all the associated related objects and then update the records.  If you have any specific issues, please include the code you have written and we can help you with it.

NOTE: When including code please use the "Add a code sample" button (icon <>) to increase readability and make referencing code easier.

Hi Chuck,

We cannot connect picklists as such but, an account can have more than one opportunities, then a change in account would be reflected in all the opportunities and a change in one opportunity would change the account value. Are you sure this is what you want? A bit of details would be great.

All the best
