I have three sets of grouping on my sample file attached.  If I click 1or 2 (at top right) then either all groups expand or close up.  Is there a way to have numbers 1, 2, 3 up top and clicking on each number will expand just one of the sections?

I don't think so, but you can easily just click the + sign above the group you want to expand, then click the - sign to contract it...

Just like he said, but you could build a macro that would expand / collapse the currently selected group and code it to buttons marked 1, 2, and 3.

You can use something like this:

If ActiveCell.EntireColumn.ShowDetail Then
   ActiveCell.EntireColumn.ShowDetail = False
Else
    ActiveCell.EntireColumn.ShowDetail = True
End If

Open in new window
