trying to do a simple child/partent comparison.
=if(PARENT([System Number]@row) = ([System Number]@row),"true","false")
what i am complaring is the child (indented) is the same as partent.
can you help.
Hi @Stephen Hindes ,
Your formula worked for me. Place it in a column other than your System Number column. If the parent and child are the same it will return "True", otherwise "False". The column the formula is in needs to have a text/number property or a check box.
Work for you?
I'm grateful for your "Vote Up" or "Insightful". Thank you for contributing to the Community.
it works not, but is there a formula that will check if it is the parent?
Hi @Stephen Hindes
I usually add a so-called helper column called Level with the formula below, and then you can use it to identify parents and use it for conditional formatting and more.
=IF(COUNT(CHILDREN([Task Name]@row)) > 0, COUNT(ANCESTORS()) + 1)
Would that work/help?
I hope that helps!
Be safe and have a fantastic week!
