Changing the positions of limits on displayed mathematical notation

I'm using Mathematica to typeset formulas for inclusion in Keynote  
(pasted in as PDFs) and I was wondering how to change where the limits  
of summation are placed on a displayed formula.  In the cell below, I  
have a summation appearing in the denominator of a fraction and the  
limits are, by default, placed off to the right; I greatly prefer  
having the limits written above and below the Sigma.  I've highlighted  
the summation and looked through a bunch of options using the Option  
Inspector, but I have no idea what I should change...

Any help would be appreciated. I'm sure this is a trivial problem but  
I don't know where to look!

Cell[TextData[Cell[BoxData[
  FormBox[
   StyleBox[
    RowBox[{
     RowBox[{
      SubsuperscriptBox["p", "i", "j"], "(",
      RowBox[{"t", "+", "1"}], ")"}], "=",
     FractionBox[
      RowBox[{
       RowBox[{"k", "\[CenterDot]",
        RowBox[{
         SubsuperscriptBox["p", "i", "j"], "(", "t", ")"}]}], "+",
       RowBox[{"Cov", "(", "j", ")"}]}],
      RowBox[{"k", "+",
       RowBox[{
        UnderoverscriptBox["\[Sum]",
         RowBox[{"j", "=", "1"}], "n"],
        RowBox[{"Cov", "(", "j", ")"}]}]}]]}], "DisplayFormula"],
   TraditionalForm]],
  FormatType->"TraditionalForm"]], "Text",
  CellChangeTimes->{{3.413467535896776*^9, 3.413467687100032*^9}}]

Cheers,

Jason
