Summary info from Parent in a Child Layout

Question asked by amsc on Nov 4, 2017

This is probably a straight forward question, but I'm trying to figure out how to get parent summary info on a child sub-summary layout.  In this relationship I have a straight forward parent --> child.  In the layout, I have the following part layout:

 

Regional sub summary section

Parent sub summary section

Body

 

Obviously, any data I pull from the parent and put into the parent sub summary section works because of the relationship.  But, I now need to put summarized parent info into the regional sub summary section where several parent records need to be summed up.  When I've tried this, I get either the parent value for the first child record occurrence, or a total of each parent record multiple by the number of child records.  How can I get just the parent summary info? 

 

The layout needs to be on the child table; it won't really work with a portal from the parent record (there are an unlimited # of child records for each parent). 

 

Thanks!
