Good Day Smartsheet Community:

Does anyone have a Formula that would Collect info from the Child and place in the Parent Cell? For Example:

Parent Cell Result: Red, Blue, Green

Child Info:

Red

Blue

Green

Thanks

    Hi @Ray B

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Try something like this.

    =JOIN(COLLECT(CHILDREN(); CHILDREN(); <>""); ", ")
    

    Depending on your country/region, you'll need to exchange the comma to a period and the semi-colon to a comma.

    Did that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
