Auto populate a child from a parent

I would like my child row to auto populate from the parent row when triggered from a cad person. I would like the "Drawing Number" and "Project" from the parent row to auto populate the child row when a "Cad person" is chosen. I would be fine with a separate column that would equal the parent row drawing number and Project per child when triggered from a cad person.

    Hey @MForston

    =IF(AND([Cad Person]@row<>"", COUNT(CHILDREN([Drawing Number]@row))=0), PARENT([Drawing Number]@row)+" "+Project@row)

    If you want additional delimiters, like a dash, in between the Drawing Number and Project then add that between the quotes,

    Will this work for you?
