Check if a row is parent and starts with "abcde"
Comments

=IF(AND(LEFT(PARENT(), 5) = "abcde", COUNT(CHILDREN()) > 0), "Y", "N")
Change Y or N to what you need, depending on whether the formula meets the criteria.
Note that this will only check for children in the same column

Thanks for this. Is there a way to find if the PARENT OR the GRANDPARENT has the word "abcde"?
