Getting seperate layers to do same movement

I have a movie clip in a layer and a solid layer behind it and I want both to movie to the same wiggle effect. How do I do this?

Add a wiggle to one of the layers and then parent the 2nd layer to the first.

if for some reason parenting won't work, you can set the expression to use the random seed value, and thus produce the same random values for wiggle().

add this above the wiggle() expression:

seedRandom(1);

you can set the value in the () to any integer (ie. 5, 99, etc), just make sure they are the same for both expressions to get the same random values.

Thanks for the responses. Both helped in my understanding.
