    I would like to have a text column return the top level task summary name for every sub summary and sub task. I cannot find how to get anything other than just the task summary name, which only goes up 1 level. Any ideas?

    Hi cbass1224

    You can insert a Column / field: Project Summary Task or Hierearchical Level or Hierarchical Number.
    Paste in Excel use simple formulas to do that you want and copy to a Text column in Project

    Hope this solution help you.

    Thank you, but this doesn’t really help. I’m trying to set up a series of weekend work subproject files that should be updated by different resource groups. Then I can insert them into a master file and use a common piece of data on the task level of each subproject to group them together by job. Right now I can get by if I keep every task on level-2. I can just use the Task Summary Name for grouping. But, ideally I could include some summary tasks within each job to make a more detailed roll up. But I can’t find a way to get the top level Task Summary Name on each level of task. Right now I can only get the column to populate one level up by putting in [Task Summary Name], which doesn’t even need to be done with a text column and a formula.

I hope it will also help you. Let me know if it won’t help you, I can share more links with you in which you will find useful information. I want to ask something. I am a college student and I am want to submit my assignment but I am not good at writing an essay. So, I am taking help from an online essay writer and found one of them with the https://edubirdie.org/edubirdie-review-the-most-honest-and-reliable/ this website. Is it good or not? Has anyone taken help from an online essay writer before? If yes, then from where.
