IF formula in a Report

Hello! I am on a Pro license. I have one sheet where I enter various projects in various countries. Due to my license limitations, I can't do Grouping, so I am using SUM(CHILDREN()) formula to have the project amount rolled up. If I could have an IF formula in the report I would be able to create one report for each country and display the sum in the Parent ONLY for this specific country. Has anyone tried this? Is it possible?

    One way around this is to create a 'level' column. In this column you should write a formula counting children rows. =COUNT(CHILDREN()). I usually hide this column too as you don't need to see it.

    Therefore when you use your report - you can filter the data using this column, so children > 0.

    Hope that helpss

  • Thank you, Brucey! I have also made deeper research and found that report can't have a calculated column, and it is possible to edit the formula. Any formulas would need to be edited in the source sheet.
