a simple solution?

I have a one-many relationship for my database. I want to be able to show the total number of child records for each parent record. Is there a simple calculation for that? All I can think of is to write a script to perform a search for each parent and then get the record count. I am sure there is easier and faster way.

Of course the actual case is more complicated than this. I need to show, for each parent, total number of child records seperated into different state. Something like, 4 from TX, 12 from WA, 20 from FL (total of 4 subset). I figure I can achieve this by adding more conditions to my relationship.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Define a calc in the parent file:

Count of Child (calculation, number result) = count(child::recordID)
