Project budgeting

edited 08/27/17 in Archived 2017 Posts


I'm maintaining a project budget sheet but i am having a problem with a formula i have applied same formula to all columns but last column is not being linked to the total formula bar. 

I am using the formula =sum(children()) for all columns, can you assist me in figuring this out

    Hi Mohammed,

    To clarify, do you have a SUM(CHILDREN()) formula in all of your columns, and then a different formula that calculates the grand total from all of your SUM(CHILDREN()) formulas?

    If that's the case, you'll need to reference the last column's SUM(CHILDREN()) cell in your grand total formula.
