Counting Portal Entries


     Using Filemakerpro 11 Is there a way to count entries in a portal so as to use that number in a calculation?

     Each record represents a person. In each record there is a Reference field that  may contain one other person's name.  The portal in each record contains the names of all persons who have referenced that person based on name matching with the
     Reference fields (using a Relationship).  Each person is to receive a discount based on the number of other persons who have referenced him.

     If a portal doesn't work, what scheme would you recommend to do this?

     I.E count the number of references each person receives and use it in a calculation.
