Grandparent  SUM???
Parent  ="Total: " + COUNTIF(CHILDREN(), 1)
Child  Tick box

Hi Sharon I am going to take a stab at this one. Are you trying to get the sum and counts of checked children? In this case the grandparent will show the sum of checked children, and the parent will show the count of checked children? If so:
Grandparent:
=SUMIF(CHILDREN(CheckParentRow), 1, CHILDREN(AmountParentRow))
Parent:
=COUNTIF(CHILDREN(CheckParentRow), 1)
Hope that helps.

Yes that is what i was asking. Thank you so much. ...

Sorry yes, but what if you have multiple parent lines with the following sum,
="Total: " + COUNTIF(CHILDREN(), 1)
How do you count a cell that reads Total: 2, Total: 1 Total: 5 = 8

Simply sum of the children. SmartSheet respects nesting and the relationship, so it will not consider grandchildren if you are looking for a sum of the parents.
