Parent Row showing on multiple rows in a report


I'm currently using a sheet with information about different projects and need to show a Parent Row on all the other different "statuses" assigned to different Subtasks of that same project, I already have a formula to show the Parent based on their children, but I would appreciate any help on this issue.

Attached screenshot with example - "Feature6" should also have a parent row named "India" just like "Feature2"

I'm hoping to either have a way to "duplicate" that Parent row in the report withouth duplicating it on the actual sheet.

Thanks for any help provided.

    Hi @Arturo U

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    Add a so-called helper column with the following formula and make it a Column Formula. (update to match your sheet and need.)

    =PARENT([Primary Column]@row)

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe, and have a fantastic week!
