I want to use a date in the parent row in a formula to generate another date (in the child row).

Partial data (some columns are hidden)

I would like to use the IT Installation Date of the parent, to populate the Due Date of the Server is up in Store row.

Then, I would like to use a different column (called SO Date) to calculate the 3 weeks to Soft Open, 1 Week to Soft Open, and 1 Day to Soft Open Due dates.

I tried =PARENT([IT Installation Date]), but it says unparseable.

The IT Installation Date is a formula, that is looked up from another sheet. I don't know if that makes a different.

Anyone with any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
