    Hey @Bobby

    The COLLECT function has the syntax of COLLECT(Range where the data is you are trying to collect), Range1, CRITERIA1, Range2, CRITERIA2, etc). The data is always added to the COLLECT function in a range-criteria pair. The formula B above does not list criteria for any of the ranges.

    In Formula A, it says to collect Cost Center data when the Cost Center rows have data on the same row in the [Invoice No] column that matches the current row Unique Invoice .

    If you describe the data you are trying to collect, the community can help you with the specific formula.
