I don't know if this REALLY IS a relational issue or not but here is the outline:

2 databases on the same server/host/service instance

First database has a column/field that when changed (UPDATE/INSERT/DELETE) I would like a column/field in the second database to reflect that change as well.

This is an easy-do with PHP I know, thats not what I am looking for though. I'm looking for som SQL magic that just "does-it", if there is such a thing. I was thinking possibly it had to do with relationships but now that I am thinking (scary) maybe a stored proceedure wich would require MySQL 5+.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

You could use a procedure, however I would use a trigger...
