Subtotals

The Subtotals tool is similar to the built-in Subtotals feature in Excel but it has a few significant differences (improvements). The Spreadspeed Subtotals tool, instead of grouping the original data, will extract the data from the existing range and place the output in any location that you specify. Also, the Spreadspeed Subtotals tool does not need recognizable headings and can operate on any range.
