IsBlank function not working for Parent fields

is blank
Hi,

sum a specific column when the child record is in a specific location
I have a table where users can select a parent record in more than one location. For example, a child table, "work order" contains both "Service 1", and "Service 2" links to the "services" table. Each linked service has an associated quantity column in the "work order" table.

Is it possible to add comments when writing a long formula?
In most languages you can add comments that does not affect the code or formula. Out of habit I tried to use ' but that didn't seem to work. Does trackvia allow for this kind of thing and if so what is the symbol or text?

How do I calculate the sum of a column so that I can then use that to determine the percentage of the total for a given value?

Everything I have tried so far just returns 100% as it is only doing the calculation on a row by row basis rather than using the column total.1 vote
