Basic question on COUNT formula


Hi - new to SmartSheet, so forgive the basic question. If I just wanted to count the values in the rows that are blue and NOT the child rows, how would I go about doing that? Thanks in advance.

    You could create a helper column called "Level" with a column formula as shown below. Then count the rows where Level equals 0.

    Thank you! That worked. Wonder if you could help me on another problem. In the column called "TA", I'd like to count the number of times that "SC/SE" is used and the number of times "Cross TA" is used. Any recommendations in terms of formulas? Thanks in advance.
