Update a field through junction object

Hi all,

I have the following setup:
[Obj1] - [Junction Object] - [Obj2]

And a workflow that fires whenever Junction Object is created or modified, and does a field update from Obj2 to Obj1, field is calle Extra Information.

It works well when adding a junction objet, but doesn't work when the Extra Information field is upated on Obj2 AFTER we have already extablished the junction object. 

Is there a way to refrech the Extra Information field in this case without writing trigger code?

Thanks

Using cross object formula(http://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=customize_cross_object.htm&language=en_US) you will be able to update the Extra information field from Obj 2 to junction object.

But again to update the same from junction object to Obj1- you would have to write a trigger as Obj1 is the master in this case...
