I have a pivot table that summarizes rows with a grand total row and grouped subtotal rows - I would like to set it up so it automatically highlights the subtotal rows. IOs there a way to do this?

Thanks

Hi,

If you hover the mouse over the top edge of the first sub-total cell on the pivot table, the cursor will change to a down-arrow. Click to select all sub-total rows, and then apply the format you want.
It should then stick to the sub-totals as you filter or expand/collapse the rows.
