VB to select cells in excel

The current code finds the first "o" in a column, then selects all values below (by CTRL+SHIFT+Down) ... but right now, it selects all values below the first "o" found, including the "Total" row. I need everthing selected once the "o" is found, except the "Total" row.

Its really a matter of doing the (by CTRL+SHIFT+Down) action, except the last row but im not sure how to do it. See the file attached and code.

Hopes this makes some sense. Let me know if any further questions.

Any takers?

Sub FindGroup()
    Cells.Find(What:="o", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:= _
        xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
        , SearchFormat:=False).Activate
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Selection.Rows.Group
End Sub

Try:

Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).offset(-1,0).select

have to try it yet:

Sub FindGroup()

   If ActiveCell <> "Total" Then

    Cells.Find(What:="o", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:= _
        xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False _
        , SearchFormat:=False).Activate
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Selection.Rows.Group

end if

End Sub
