I'm assuming that your relationship graph looks something like this:
Student::ID = Transaction::ForeignKey-StudentID = Transaction Lineitem::ForeignKey-StudentID
So that there is a link from student to transaction Lineitem
Try doing a list view/sub summary report based on the Transaction Lineitem table. Have the Sub summary sort on the Student Foreign key so that it groups all of a students records togther. In the Sub Sumary section you can put information like the name from the Student record and the date and event.
That works great! Thank you!
