You have to pickwhip to the identical property. Are you doing this? And even more fundamentally, are you creating an expression to be able to use the pickwhip? Or are you trying to parent two layers together?

Not sure exactly what you're doing........

There's no keyframe on the text layer to which you are pick-whipping. AE thinks you still may change the text.

There's a good chance the syntax is wrong if this master layer is in a different comp.

Pickwhipping should give you an expression like this:

comp("01 Top Title").layer("Full CONTROLLER 2").text.sourceText

If that expression is giving you an error, I would first ask if you have more than one comp named "01 Top Title" in your project.
