    My suggestion would be a helper column with the following in the child rows:


    Now that we have the material also listed on the child rows, you can use this to flag the rows at the top...

    =IF(COUNTIFS([Helper Column]:[Helper Column], @cell = Infos@row, Startdate:Startdate, @cell <= Enddate@row, Enddate:Enddate, @cell >= Startdate@row) = 0, "Green", "Red")
