Subtracting Subtotals from Subtotals

Posted on 2012-03-22

I have the following code:

'*             Format the main Dashboard                     *
' (This routine will take 90 seconds)
    Dim Bcell As Range
Application.DisplayStatusBar = True
Application.StatusBar = "Please wait while the Dashboard is being formatted... It will take 50 sec"
Application.Calculation = xlCalculationManual
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlDown)).Select
    Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
    Selection.Subtotal GroupBy:=1, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array( _
    6 , 7 , 8, 9, 14, 15, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, _
    40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 48, 49, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64), _
 Replace:=True, _
        PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True

Open in new window

I would like to subtract

- the subtotals of columns 40 from column 6
- the subtotals of columns 41 from column 7
- the subtotals of columns 42 from column 8
- the subtotals of columns 43 from column 9
And so on...

In other words the subtotals of the second row of code from the subtotals of the first row of code

Thank you

Can you post some sample workbook data? that your code can be run against and then enhanced?

This is an example of what I am trying to do.  Any suggestion to do it in a different way is welcome.

Got it.  Thanks for closing out the older questions, I was wondering about that ;)

Code creates the grouping with subtotals, then a loop to add a SUMIF to each of the subtotals based on the build of the address to that point.  At the bottom, the build is based on the entire list.

Option Explicit

Sub doSubTotals()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim lastRow As Long
Dim r As Range
Dim rBuild As Range
Dim rng As Range

    Set wkb = ThisWorkbook
    Set wks = wkb.ActiveSheet
    lastRow = wks.Range("B" & wks.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Set rng = wks.Range("B7:E" & lastRow)
    rng.Subtotal groupby:=1, Function:=xlSum, TotalList:=Array(3), _
        Replace:=True, PageBreaks:=False, SummaryBelowData:=True
    lastRow = wks.Range("B" & wks.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
    Set rng = wks.Range("B7:E" & lastRow)
    For Each r In wks.Range(rng.Columns(1).Address)
        If InStr(r.Value, "Total") <> 0 Then 'found subtotal row
            If Not rBuild Is Nothing Then
                r.Offset(, 2).Formula = r.Offset(, 2).Formula & "- SUMIF(" & rBuild.Offset(, 3).Address & ",""Y""," & rBuild.Offset(, 2).Address & ")"
                Set rBuild = rng.Columns(1)
                r.Offset(, 2).Formula = r.Offset(, 2).Formula & "- SUMIF(" & rBuild.Offset(, 3).Address & ",""Y""," & rBuild.Offset(, 2).Address & ")"
            End If
            Set rBuild = Nothing
        ElseIf rBuild Is Nothing Then
            Set rBuild = r
            Set rBuild = Union(rBuild, r)
        End If
    Next r
End Sub
