Excel grouping with subtotal

Hi, I have the following data
2013-11      Employee x      ESX      0       18,800
2013-11      Employee x      ESX      0             -  
2013-11      Employee x      ESX      1       1,110,200
If i use subtotal on the data i get

MYmonth              E_Name   XID IS_LOCAL ttlvol
Employee X Total 0               0      0       1,129,000

Is there another function that i can use to get the e_name to show up rather than 0?

I assume you mean the XID since E_NAME is showing? There is no direct way to do it within the subtotal function, but if you don't include an aggregate function for that column (so you get a blank cell rather than 0), you can then select the column once the subtotals are in place, press f5, click Special..., choose Blanks and OK. This will select the empty cells in the subtotals rows. You may then type = and press the up arrow once, then press Ctrl+Enter together.

Sorry i actually typed it in because i was thinking it, bu basically i want to get a subtotal grouped on multiple fields. Is that possible?

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by that? You can have multiple levels of subtotal but the subtotals only occur based on a change in one column. Perhaps you would be better off with a pivot table? (Personally, I rarely use subtotals)
