Parent Account data in case

I have a parent account which contains a value called TotalFees.
All child accounts of the parent do not contain this field.

I open cases under contacts belonging to the parent account, how can I bring the TotalFees of the parent account into a page within the case? So far I have only managed to bring in the parent account name... but that's all...
Is your cases page a visualforce page?

If so, you can create a controller extension to pull additional related account information (e.g. TotalFees) and display it on your visualforce page.
Yes. I am using visualforce pages.
I am not entirely familiar with the syntax of custom controllers - would you be so kind as to write one that fetches the data I need so I can study the syntax?

HI mate,


did you get anywhere with this ?


I'm actually meeting the same issue and just surfing through boards and help tips without getting a solution.


This is really a piece of cake for relational DataBase, can't understand why in SF I'm still spending so much time to get a solution.




No. I eventually just dropped the idea.

It would work when there was one parent and one child, but when a parent became an ancestor, it stopped working




I though you cold query up to 5 levels but probably I'm mistaking
