IF Statements and Summing Children
Hi there  I need a hand with a formula. I'm trying to do the following:
Show the difference between Budgeted Amount and Quote Amount unless there is a value in the Actual Amount column, then I'd like to show the difference between the Budgeted Amount and the Actual Amount. But I only want to calculate those values if the Quote Amount AND the Actual Amount aren't blank. If Actual Amount and Quote Amount are blank, the Budget Over/Under Column should be "0". And the formula should calculate the difference if it's a child, otherwise, it should show the sum of the children.
I'm so close but it seems that the IF/OR statement has thrown me off the trail. Could someone please lend a hand?
Here's the formula that worked prior to me realizing I only wanted the formula to run if both Quote Amount and Actual Amount were blank:
=IF([Actual Amount]@row > 1, IF(COUNT(CHILDREN()) = 0, [Actual Amount]@row  [Budgeted Amount]@row, SUM(CHILDREN())), IF(COUNT(CHILDREN()) = 0, [Quote Amount]@row  [Budgeted Amount]@row, SUM(CHILDREN())))
And here's a screen shot. The formula goes in the Budget Over/Under Column
Best Answer

I got you  use this:
=IF(COUNT(CHILDREN()) > 0, SUM(CHILDREN()), IF(AND(NOT(ISNUMBER([Quote Amount]@row)), NOT(ISNUMBER([Actual Amount]@row))), 0, IF(ISNUMBER([Actual Amount]@row), [Budgeted Amount]@row  [Actual Amount]@row, [Budgeted Amount]@row  [Quote Amount]@row)))
It ends up looking like this:
