How do you access fields on a Parent document from an unsaved response doc?

Create a computed for display field named QUERY_STRING on your form with the formula "". You can then access any fields from the parent using this in a second, computed field:

  parent := @Word(@Right(@Uppercase(QUERY_STRING);"&ParentUNID=");"&";1);
  valueNow := @GetDocField(parent; "Field1");
