Display contact information in account tab

I am looking to pull a specific, custom, text field from the contact tab into the account tab.


Basically, if the given account has a certain member, display it. Otherwise display nothing.


Can this be accomplished with a formula field or does it have to be done with Apex/VF?

Cross-object formula fields display parent(s) data on the child, not the other direction. You would need to use Apex Code to capture your custom text field from the child.
