Hello,

I'm trying to check if cells have a particular function (subtotal).    I was thinking about basing it on

Function IsFormula(cell_ref As Range)
    IsFormula = cell_ref.HasFormula
End Function
from Mr. Excel but I can't seem to make it work.

Thanks,

Perhaps.
Function IsSubTotalFormula(cell_ref As Range) As Boolean
    If cell_ref.HasFormula Then
        IsSubTotalFormula = InStr(cell_ref.Formula, "SUBTOTAL") > 0
    End If
End Function

This will do the trick

Function IsSubTotal(cell_ref As Range)
    If InStr(cell_ref.Formula, "SUBTOTAL") = 0 Then
        IsSubTotal = False
    Else
        IsSubTotal = True
    End If
End Function
