Is there a way to use the =PARENT() formula to copy the hyperlink and display text to the child row?

    Hi @Carrie Jarvis

    Not sure I follow.

    Can you describe your process in more detail and maybe share the sheet(s)/copies of the sheet(s) or some screenshots? (Delete/replace any confidential/sensitive information before sharing) That would make it easier to help. (share too, [email protected])

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic week!

    Best,

  • Hi @Andrée Starå ,

    We have a column with a hyperlink and custom display text in the parent row that points to folders on our google drive. When we add new work to our sheet we have a template that we copy; which includes the formula, =parent().

    Once we have edited the parent row link to point to the correct folder, we want the same link with the display text to populate in the child rows. Currently, the link becomes just text.
