Do you mean the subtotal fomula (eg: =subtotal(9,A1:a5) or that there is a Row/Column labelled 'subtotal' or that there is an actual button marked 'subtotal' and you want to delete it ?

assuming the data starts in A1 - try:


    Range("A1").Select
    Selection.RemoveSubtotal

I figured it out -- here is the code:
'Clear Subtotal Buttons
  Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    Dim wkSt As String
    Dim wkBk As Worksheet
    wkSt = ActiveSheet.Name
    For Each wkBk In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
        On Error Resume Next
        wkBk.Activate
        Selection.ClearOutline
               
               
    Next wkBk
    Sheets(wkSt).Select
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True

its gone beyond the points but if you are asking questions please try to be explicit about what you are trying to achieve:-

your question:
"I would like to remove the subtotal buttons with VBA on all sheets. "

the answer you came up with:-
"Selection.ClearOutline"

Apart from not explaining what you meant by 'Subtotal buttons' you seem to be unaware that Outlines and Subtotals are different things - so it was a waste of time for all concerned.
