Can't show related and non-related value in portal

I have a self-join relation and a portal based on that. Within the portal I want a calc field to compare the value of a field in the portal, with the value for the current record (outside the portal). There seems to be no way to get them both at the same time. If I base my calc on the portal's relation, I can get the portal row's field value, but not the current record's field value (it evaluates to the related value). If I base it on the current layout, I can't get the portal row's value.

Any ideas?

See if it can help. There's a script in all navigation buttons, from which a relationship is established.

There may be other tricks available. Anyway, by doing so you'd force unstored calcs which wouldn't be a good option if the number of records was high. Too slow.
