Trying to sum the durations for any tasks without children
I am using SUMIF to try to sum the durations of any tasks without children. I can get it to work with dummy columns but I'm stuck on trying to do it in one formula.
I am testing with a small 5 row section. This is the formula I'm using but the sum keeps coming out wrong.
=SUMIF([Task Name]18:[Task Name]22, COUNT(CHILDREN()) = 0, Duration18:Duration22)
If you look at the picture, tasks "R, S, T, U" do not have children. Because they don't have children, I would like to sum their durations. The answer should be 20 but my formula keeps saying 0.

You need to create a helper column that will flag or check a box or output some kind of indicator on the rows you want to include.
