Define Range Based On Parent

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2016 Posts

I have been trying to figure out how to define a range based on the parent. So I know I can sum all the children of a parent but I want to know how parse all the grandchildren or great grandchildren for specific data. 


I can define how many rows to the last row is under a parent but I can`t use that number to define the range. One step left anyone done this?

    Hello Cameron,


    There isn't a way to iterate over grandchildren, great grandchildren, etc. with a formula but I'll pass your feedback along for this on our enhancement request list for further consideration. With that being said, you can use the CHILDREN function with a child row that is also a parent, then possibly rolls this up as needed into the grandparent.
