Listener to copy one field to another within the same issue

I have a calculated "Expense" field that I need to have automatically copied over to an "*Expense" number field whenever the "Expense" field is updated.

 

Can anybody tell me how to script this?

A listener which fires on "Issue Updated" could have code like this to update another field:

import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.ModifiedValue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.util.DefaultIssueChangeHolder
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

def issue = event.issue as Issue
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def tgtField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjects(event.issue).find {it.name == "fieldToUpdateHere"}
def calcField = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("calculatedFieldNameHere")
def changeHolder = new DefaultIssueChangeHolder()
tgtField.updateValue(null, issue, new ModifiedValue(issue.getCustomFieldValue(tgtField), issue.getCustomFieldValue(calcField)),changeHolder)

ok so now what would i change this to if the we wanted to copy from a scripted field to a number field?

that works! Thank you!
