Can you pull in children rows based on parent row criteria?

Options

I am trying to filter a report based on parent row criteria but also show the children rows for the parent row. Is this possible?

    Hi,

    Isn't there at least ONE column that has the same criteria as the children? Something about the children must be the same as the parent. That is the whole point of having children. There's no way to make that NOT sound weird. Sorry.

    Another possibility could be that the child rows are NOT populated in some of the columns that are used as criteria?

    Hi @MeyerL

    I hope you're well and safe!

    You could add a so-called helper column and the following formula.

    =PARENT(ColumnName@row)
    

    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Have a fantastic week & Happy Holidays!

    Best,
