Is there a formula which can number row hierarchies?
I am looking for a number which can categroise row hierarchies into numbers.
I have a column called "Hierarchy" and in each row I want it to generate a number depending on what hierarchy the row falls under.
For example, the Parent row would return 1, the child of that row would be 2, the grandchild would be 3 etc etc
PARENT  1
CHILD  2
GRANDCHILD  3
