httpS://subdomain.domain.com/app3/ -> httpS://subdomain.domain.com/app3/file.htm

In another thread, http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Servers/Apache/Q_22047784.html#17866370, ravenpl helped with the http://subdomain.domain.com/* -> http://subdomain.domain.com/* rewrite rule...

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www\.)?subdomain.domain.com
RewriteRule (.*) https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R]

I just need to tie in the rest.  I tried and got some undesired results.

Sorry that should have been

http://subdomain.domain.com/* -> httpS://subdomain.domain.com/*

The reason I wanted that there is if a user knows the full path to a particlar file, they could type that in and use regular http, which I want to avoid.  Does this make things more complicated with the other rules?

I realise that the intelligent thing to do is read man pages at apache.org, but this is a once off configuration so I thought it best to ask an expert.
