Auto populate a text field with the same value as selected from picklist

Hi ,
Im trying to auto populate a text field with the same value as I selected in the picklist. How can I add this as a workflow action.
If i select a value in the picklist the same value shuld be displayed as a text in the text field.
Im a newbie to salesforce and I really need help on this one.

Thanks!

You can use as below:

Workflow:

Evaluation criteria: Created or everytime it is edited.
Rule criteria (formula) : ISCHANGED (picklist field)

Field Update:
Select the text field to update.
Use formula to set a new value and formula is TEXT(picklist field))

If it works then select this answer as solved. Thanks.
