I'm so sorry.  I totally spaced it and stopped reading after "export", and didn't event catch "excel".  ;)

I don't know the answer to that.

What are you looking for as far as a "subtotal format"?

You can loop through each row of the parent DataTable, and call the row's GetChildRows(relationName)
method to retrieve all of the related rows, then write the Parent row, and each child row to Excel.

So it would (basically) be something like this in Excel:

parent row 1
     child row 1
     child row 2
     child row 3

parent row 2
     child row 1
     child row 2
     child row 3

etc...

Is that what you are referring to, or did you have something else in mind?
