Copying fields from one table to another on a layout

Hi

Does anyone know a function which will convert all fields on a layout belonging to a different table to the same-named fields in the native table?

For instance, a set of 6 Address fields.

The first image below shows fields copied from a layout of Table X and pasted into a layout of Table Y. At the moment, when I want to change those fields to Table Y's fields, I have to click on each one, select the correct table, then choose the field.

I'm wondering if there is a quicker way? A function which instructs Filemaker to look for any non-native fields on a layout, then to look in the current table for identically-named fields and, if it finds them, change the fields to those ones.

Thanks

Philip
