I've researched this and cant find a solution. 


How can I set up a CountIf formula for ONLY if Parent Rows are checked in an entire sheet? I can do this for the children rows but cant figure out how to do it only for Parent rows.


Also, Can I place this formula on the checkbox column (at the very top for a total) and show a value? 


Thanks in Advance

    1. Create a column called vParent (lock it)
    2. enter the following formula:
      • =IF(COUNT(CHILDREN()) > 0,1,0)

    this will enter a check if the the row has children. Now in your summary cell you can enter
