Counting Portal Rows


I have a simple database to do journal entries.  One Table (Parent) has one entry for each journal entry.  In a portal I added the debit and credit entries to make the journal entry (Child).  I need to make sure only XX lines are entered into the portal.

Can I do real-time count the lines?  Do I have to commit the portal to update the count?  It is a printing issue to keep it to one page.  

In the Parent table, I have a Calculation field COUNT(child::GLNum).  But it is blank on a record that has 17 portal records.  GLNum can never be empty.

I was following this example:
