Display found count from one table on a layout in another table
I have a Subscribers table and a Messages table. I have a calc field with get(found count) in the Subscribers table that correctly displays the found count there, but I can't figure out how to get this Subscribers found count to display on a Messages table layout. It keeps displaying the total record count of Subscribers instead of the found count. All the fields are unstored and the tables are related by a global calc field defined as "1". I also tried a "count(subscribers::global_1)" field in the Messages table but it still just displays the total records rather than the found count.
I've been at this for hours and it's really driving me up the wall now.
I'm hoping someone can help -- thanks in advance!
