An excell spreadsheet has been created to capture revenue.  The form
has a seperate column to indicate the week (1-4). The weekly column
has a sorter which will allow the individual to look at a specific
week or the entire month. Currently the total revenue is only showing
the aggregate of all of the information even if you select a certain
week because the cells are simply hidden.  My question is what formula
do I need for the TOTAL REVENUE as this column will change depending
on which week is selected?

The first argument to SUBTOTAL is a number indicating what summary
function (like SUM, AVERAGE, etc) to perform. A complete list is
available in Excel Help for the SUBTOTAL worksheet function. The list
is also available at the following website.

There is a nice explanation of how to use SUBTOTAL to do what you
describe at the following website:

function. Good luck with your Excel project!
