Trying to update a field in a parent record with informatio​n from a field in related list records

Hi,

I would like to update a field on my parent record (Campaign), based on a filed  value in a related list/child object (Service Requests). Is this possible?

Salesforce provides Rollup Summary field for parent object if you are using Master-detail relationship. If Rollup summary field will not work for your requirement, you need to write a trigger on related list object (child object) to implement this functionality.

if you want to perform aggregate functions i.e sum of related records, maximum , minimum, avaerage of any field from related records than you simply use roll up summary else you have to write a trigger that will do this for you..
