How can the Parent Task show the least value of its children?

Dear collegues,

I have a project plan. There is a column, called "Color Symbol" where I choose by a formula if a task is ...

Blue = already done, Green = Still in the future, Yellow = Due in 3 days, Red = Due date already passed.

QUESTION: Would now like to see at the parent task what the lowest (minimal) status is.

For that matter I highlighted in purple in the screen shot beneath these lines here where I would like to see the lowest color symbol.

The result should be at row 1 = Blue, row4 = Red, row7 = Yellow

Would be greatly appreciated if someone could help! Thank-you already dearly in advance!

Best regards

Hans ... from Germany

Hi Hans,

Try this MIN formula in the purple cells. Hope it works for you.
