Hierarchy Summation

My dataset contains many jobs with some nested under each other. I'm trying to get the total hours worked for each 'parent' job. Each parent job does not have a distinct hours value tied to them. There is no way to relate the child job to the parent job unless it's through the Hierarchy Code column. I want the total hours worked for Jobs A and B 

Below is a mock table of the data. I've also taken alook at this similar post

Hi @Pillz_ ,

 

You could use Split Column featrue in Query Editor.

Then use DAX function to create a calculated column.

Column = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[hours]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[hierarchy code.1]))

@Pillz_ it will be easier if you add a new column in Power Query (recommended) and extra Job code from Hiearchary code, like text before the first period (.)

 

Once you have this new column, just use table visual, this new code, and hours and everything should work as expected.
