Hello,

I need formula to Sum the total of multiple Column Header Rows using the =COUNTIF(CHILDREN(), 1) + ""

Essentially a Grand Total of Header Column Row Totals.

I'm using the using the =COUNTIF(CHILDREN(), 1) + "" formula to Sum Sub Headers (Group of Rows) that are Checkboxes. The Row Header Sum is Working, but I can't seem to create the appropriate Grand Total (Parent) Sum of the Children Header Lines.

For anyone looking to accomplish the same goal, I was able to create the following formula that now works.

=COUNTIF(CHILDREN([STEM?]2, [STEM?]125, [STEM?]172, [STEM?]212, [STEM?]303, [STEM?]320, [STEM?]362, [STEM?]473, [STEM?]502, [STEM?]513, [STEM?]522), 1) + ""
