I need an EXCEL VBA example on how to insert a row and format the cells.

On the spreadsheet I have these rows.
      Col A            Col B            Col C
Company A      Winget 1       10,000
Company A      Winget 3        10,000
Company A      Winget 4       20,000
Company A      Winget 5        30,000
Company B      Winget 1       10,000
Company B     Winget 3        20,000
Company B      Winget 4       30,000
Company B     Winget 5        40,000



I want to insert a line below these rows using VBA. Each cell in right justifed, Bolded and the third column cell would sum Col C. The row will be light blue in colour.

The result would look like this  

      Col A            Col B            Col C
Company A      Winget 1       10,000
Company A      Winget 3        10,000
Company A      Winget 4       20,000
Company A      Winget 5        30,000
                            Totals:        60,000
Company B      Winget 1       10,000
Company B     Winget 3        20,000
Company B      Winget 4       30,000
Company B     Winget 5        40,000
                            Totals:       100,000

With each totals row highlighted in blue and all cells bolded and right justified.

Out of curiosity, why not simply use the Subtotals feature?

Or even better, a PivotTable?

Can I get the effect I need using the subtotals feature?

Cannot use a pivot table.

Subtotal feature is on the Data menu.

Fairly simple procedure, the only pre-requisite I would suggest you check on before initiating the feature is to check that the column for which you want the totals based on, eg Company in your example, is sorted because the subtotal feature relies on a change in value in a column to insert a row and apply the subtotal.

The subtotal feature will only add the rows with the subtotals, with the wording "Total Company A" or something similar. If you want specific text on the total row, I suspect you could achieve with edit/replace.

The formatting would have to be done separately.

The whole thing could be run through a single macro.

Thanks
