Access child relationships through merge syntax

edited October 15, 2019 in Questions
Is it possible to access child relationship through merge syntax? I have tried a few variations with no success. I am trying to write the value from the child relationship to a new object.

The last attempt looks like this:

    I tried what you suggested but I have not been able to get it to fill in the condition code field. 

    I have a model entitled NYItemMaster from this model I want to copy certain values to a sales order lines model.

    NYItemMasters has a child relationship to Inventory_Items. There is a condition code lookup field in Inventory Items to an object condition code. I need to copy that value to the SalesOrderLines model.

    Sales Order Lines has a field entitled condition code that looks up to the same condition code object. 

    So far I can not get this to work through the child relationship with the merge syntax provided. Can you see what I am doing wrong?

    Here is what my code currently looks like:
    Thank you for any light you can shed.

    Did you actually request the SCMC__Condition_Code__r.Id field on your Child Relationship fields? Try just getting the Condition Code lookup field value itself, assuming that you've added SCMC__Condition_Code__c to the list of fields requested for your Child Relationship:

    Thank you for your reply. The issue was what I was trying to access not how. I had to access the information in another way. 

    Thank you for letting me know how to access the child relationship fields. This will be helpful in the future.

    I want to display multiple records of the parent in a table. I want to display a field of the first child record (row 0) from EACH of the parent records as a template field in the table. When I use your formula above, it works, but it loses the context of the parent row so I only get the first child row of the FIRST PARENT record. How can I get it to hold context so that each parent row displays the first child record of that parent?

    Disregard. I got it. Continuing with Tami's use case, the formula would be:
