Plus sign in front of a cell value


We just noticed a plus sign appeared in front of a value in a sheet and when you click on it, it becomes a minus. How did it get there? What does it mean and how do we remove?

    Hi @Alta

    If you don't want to click on the + sign to expand the Child Rows, I would suggest right-clicking on the column name, then selecting Expand All.

    Then you can see all the rows indented below your current one!

    I would recommend reviewing the Help Articles that @Andrée Starå has linked above as they'll have more information.
