$ChildCount – in Table Expression

i do not understand why children of subfolders are counted while immediate children aren’t? :thinking:

displaying the result in the table expression would be nice!

The table expression shows per child data, not the data of the container itself. If you have one child note with no children, it has a $ChildCount of zero, which is what the table expression accurately reflects.

If you want the (container) note to show its own child count, use a Display Expression.

Thank you, @mwra
