    Colour Sub Total Rows (Office 97/Office XP)

    Hi

    I have a spreadsheet with hundreds of sub-totals I would like to colour the rows which hold the sub-totals with a formula if possible.
    The subtotals were created by data subtotals and not with an insheet formula.

    Thanks in advance

    1. <LI>Collapse the outline to level 2 (press the 2 in the square at the top)
      <LI>Select all of the outline except the first and last rows
      <LI>Select just the visible cells (Edit | GoTo | Special button | Visible cells only)
      <LI>Do your formatting
      <LI>View the entire list (press the 3 in the square at the top)
    If you do this a lot, you will want to check out the Data | Group and Outline | Settings and define a style that Excel will just apply to subtotal rows. HTH --Sam
