Formula column for Parent Rows only



I want to use a formula column for parent rows that calculates the % remaining of POs we're tracking. I want the cells in the column for children to be blank and not display a result for % remaining. Is this possible? If so, can you assist me with the formula?

I am using this formula for the parent rows: =(Amount@row - Balance@row) / Amount@row but need to add in the logic to blank out the children row cells.

    Hi @BB2791

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =IFERROR(IF(COUNT(CHILDREN([PO Number]@row)) > 0, (Amount@row - Balance@row) / Amount@row), "")

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
