I'm not able to get the sum children to calculate on the parent column and still showing a zero amount. Any suggestions?
It looks like the numbers are formatted as text. Can you check?
Have a fantastic day!

Are the green rows indented under the Total row? They are not considered children unless they are indented.
You might also need to ensure that dependencies are enabled.
Andree, I believe they are formatted as numbers since they are left justified (unless they were manually changed to be that way).
I would have to start with Dan's suggestion of making sure the rows are actually indented.
I think the issue is in the numbers formatting. It's probably the multiple commas/punctuations that are throwing it of.
What's the formula in the parent?
Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s) or some more screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])
Have a fantastic weekend!
I think you're right and I think it's the formatting of the numbers that don't work.
Andree, I have quite a few sheets that have punctuation in the numbers, and they calculate just fine. The only way I can get the commas to display is by using the comma button in the tool bar. If I manually enter a comma while typing in a number, it is displayed without it.
It's different depending on the region, so it's probably not the same. Can you have commas and punctuations at the same time in your number cells?
The only punctuation I can use in a number cell are commas and decimals. Anything else or multiple decimals will register as text.
If I manually type "1,000.00" and then hit Enter, it will display "1000".
I have to use the buttons on the toolbar in the screenshot I posted above to have the comma(s) and decimal displayed. Even then it still works as numbers when used in formulas/calculations and stays right justified.
Hello! I created two sheets with separate forms and when I checked to see if anyone had submitted the forms yet, I didn't see anything on either sheet but when I click on "manage forms" it says that there are 62 submissions for one and 18 for the other. How can I fix this so I can see what people are submitting?! Thank…
I have a Smartsheet tracker that has been tied to one report. I recently created a second report that pulls similar information from the same Smartsheet tracker and that is working fine. However, the other report no longer shows any data in it for me or others. I have verified that we have admin access on the original…
we are looking to migrate out of smartsheet and are needing to export all of our sheets out and store them in onedrive. what is the best way to preform this?
