Help with Helper Column For Report


I have been using a helper column in my main sheet to assist with some reports. This is how it was set up:

  1. Main Project

1a. indent with each of the specific tasks for that project

For the helper column:

  1. Main Project formula: "=[Project / Task Title]@row"

1a. Tasks formula: =PARENT([Project / Task Title]@row)

The problem that I am having is for one of the project I need sub tasks to 1a and thus the helper column is pulling the sub task's parent row which is just the task. looks like:

  1. Main Project



How can I update the formulas in the helper column so the "1aa" or sub tasks call out the main project title (1).
