Excel VBA Subtotal Function


I am running a report in Excel which makes use of the Subtotal function found under the Data menu in Excel. It takes the following arguements,

expression.Subtotal(GroupBy, Function, TotalList, Replace, PageBreaks, SummaryBelowData)

The problem I have is the TotalList arguement. When recording a macro (never the best thing) this arguement has the value Array(17, 61). As my report is dynamic I need to know what this Array is doing and I can make it relative.

Thanks for any help,

So that's telling you that the subtotals will be added to fields 17 and 61 which, if your data starts in column A, should correspond to columns Q and BI on the sheet.

TotalList:=Array(10, 11, 12 , 13, 14, 15, 16)  - This is refering to the columns that will be summed up (all the the fields you check off in the Add Subtotal To section (see below))

In this example I highlighted A1 to P100 to subtotal.  I grouped on column C and my subtotals will be shown in columns J-P (10-16).
