I have a number of grouped ranges on a sheet and I would like to be able to compress them from the top. Some of the ranges cover too many rows to see the little minus sign icon beneath the bottom row. I would like to have a button on the top of the range to compress it so that I can see the range below it.

Thanks,
John

John, you can set your grouping to reverse the summary rows to above data

In XL03, when you do the subtotal, uncheck the SUmmary below data checkbox
In XL07, click on the bottom right of the Data \ Outline ribbon to access that option

Excellent, thanks, Thomas. As soon as I posted the question I realized I could achiebve the same result with a button and a macro that hides and unhides rows, but thanks for the tip.it's a much better way to do it.

And don't forget the number toggle buttons on the top left of your worksheet, that minimize the grouping at the various grouping levels.

Thanks for the grade,
