I am attempting to create a master-detail relationship on an object that is a detail record of two other objects in a many-to-many relationship. Unfortunately, it appears that the platform does not allow for this kind of schema.

As a workaround, I have created a lookup relationship instead of a master-detail, but when I try to configure the information appearing in the related list, I am unable to "pass through" the fields from the related object to the child record in the lookup relationship.

Is this possible?

    Have you tried creating formula fields on the child object? – Jeremy Nottingham Oct 7 '16 at 20:32
  • What is "pass through"? Your question is not clear. – Sebastian Kessel Oct 7 '16 at 22:20
  • It was a reference to pulling values across the junction object, and displaying them in the related lists of either Master record in the MD relationship. – toolshed Oct 8 '16 at 0:56
