    Hi @Santosh Nadar

    I have got this idea:

    1- Create 2 helper columns : Buyer and Year with following column formulas:

    Buyer =IF(COUNT(ANCESTORS(ROW@row)) = 0, JOIN(CHILDREN(ROW@row)))

    Year =VALUE(IF(COUNT(ANCESTORS(ROW@row)) = 0, RIGHT(JOIN(DESCENDANTS(ROW@row), "*"), LEN(JOIN(DESCENDANTS(ROW@row), "*")) - FIND("*", JOIN(DESCENDANTS(ROW@row), "*")))))

    2- Create summary fields in the Sheet Summary with following formulas:

    #PO / Buyer 1 / 2023 =COUNTIFS(Buyer:Buyer, "Buyer 1", Year:Year, 2023)

    #PO / Buyer 2 / 2024 =COUNTIFS(Buyer:Buyer, "Buyer 2", Year:Year, 2024)

    Hope it works for you.
