Excel VBA Format Subtotal row with color

I am trying to add color (and eventually a border) to my subtotal rows. I tried conditional formatting but it colors the entire row.  My data is only in colums A through AA.
I think there is something wrong with the way I select the range but I can't figure this out.
I have nested subtotals that total on columns C and A which might be causing problems as well.
Sub FormatSubtotalRow()

Dim LastRow As Long
Dim i As Long

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

 With Sheets("Accrual")
      LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
      For i = 2 To LastRow
      If Range("A" And i) = "Subtotal" Then
      Range("A" And i).Interior.ColorIndex = 36
      End If
      Next i
End With

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Open in new window

well I have fixed a bit your sub that had several problems here it is

Sub FormatSubtotalRow()

Dim LastRow As Long
Dim i As Long

Application.ScreenUpdating = False

 With Sheets("Accrual")
      LastRow = .Cells(.Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row
      For i = 2 To LastRow
      If LCase(Range("A" & i)) = "subtotal" Then
      Range("A" & i).Interior.ColorIndex = 36
      End If
      Next i
End With

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub

Open in new window


Now this should only color Cell A that it encounter Subtotal

Now if you want to color the whole line (From Col A to AA) that has the Subtotal whcih I would guess you would want then change
This line
Range("A" & i).Interior.ColorIndex = 36

By this line
Range("A" & i & ":AA" & i).Interior.ColorIndex = 36

Let me know

I tried your code using the Range ("A" & i & ":A" & i)  but nothing actually changed colors.  I have attached my spreadsheet so you can get a better idea of what I'm working with.

Gowflow,

I need to ask a favor. Would you save your example in an earlier version of Excel in .xlm format? The client only has Excel 2000 software. I can't open .xlsm formatted files.
Thanks!

Thanks, I will review it today. The system here won't even let me open .xlsm files, let alone choose an earlier version.

Well let me help you. It is not that I am after points in the contrary I only noticed it now when the Answer was selected by you I noticed it comes out in big Green 150 with underneith the appreciation you give either A = Excellent, B = Good and C (honestly I don't know coz I never got a C)

So let me tell you how usually Experts react to questions, some of them obviously will not look at the points allocated for the question and will rightaway if they have an answer reply etc...

BUT, most of Experts do look for points and when you rate a question at 150 when the max is 500 you have much less chances to get Expert's attention to help you. So the more oyu want Experts to give your question fastest attention the more points you allocate.

Now as a general rule and what I can tell you from personal experience being Expert on this site since October 2009 the vast majority of questions are rated at full 500 very few are at less than that and surely it is very rare cases I have seen at 150 or less.

Now again this depends on the type of subscription you have when your premium member then the points are illimited to you and you can ask as many questions as you want but I guess there are plans which I am not too familiar with where the number of quesiton asked are limited as well as the points allocated are limited for that member.

I hope I have answered your question and pls don't worry about the points in this question as it is clear it was not intentional on your part but maybe for lack of knowledge.

Got it! I thought the points awarded were relevant to the difficulty of the question. If most people rate them at the max, I will do that from now on. Thanks for the additional assistance.
