One way that I know of (and apologies if this explanation is overly simple):

1) create a field object and type some text into it

2) double-click on that field object to open up its Properties window

3) in that Properties window, check "lock text"

4) still on that Properties, click on the triangle-button near the top-right
and select "edit script"

5) in the script window that opens up, enter this script

on mouseUp
  put the clickText into field "fWhatever"
end mouseUp

6) still in the script window, click the "Apply" button and then close the
script window

7) create a field, double-click it to open its Properties window, type
"fWhatever" in the "name" box, and then close the Properties window

That's it. When you click on a word it should appear in the other field.

As for the documentation, the following terms might be useful starting
