Displaying related records in a calc field?

I have a bit of a problem. I have 3 files.

1. FSP - pretty much a report file

2. Join - Join file, (FSP has a one to many relationship with this file)

3. Join_relationship - Join has a one to many relationship with this file.

FSP is a layout that shows a list of people with a portal to the Join file. In the Join file, there is a list of relationships that person has (for instance the person's role is Child, but then the Join_relationship file is used to describe who the child is. So there would be two entries, Jan Smith and Jon Smith that would designate the person is a child of jon and jan smith.)

I need somehow to display the records from the Join_relationship file on a printed report in the FSP file. Since this is FM6, you can't access files that are two files away. I was wondering if there was some way I could summarize the related records in the Join file in a calc field so I can display the Join_relationship record data.

I think I could probably accomplish this with repeating fields in the Join file, but I have never used them before (so they're a bit of a mystery), and then I would lose (or have to re-enter) the data that's in the Join_relationship table.
