Since the pivot table formats available to me are not desireable, I'd like to create a macro to format the "total" rows on my pivot table to bold and a shaded color.
My logic is this:

If on the pivot table, any row in columns C:E contains the word "total", then format that row (starting with column that has the word total in it) and ending with column N to be bold font text and shaded orange.

Can someone help me figure out how to do this?

Does the VLOOKUP table have to be sorted?
No! when you are using an exact match, the VLOOKUP table can be in any order. Best-selling items at the top is actually the best.

In Excel2010 it's pretty easy and no need for macros!

1) Select a row containing pivot table totals by clicking on that row number (the cursor should change to the right arrow).
2) If you have multiple sub-totals, say, by production facilities and production lines, make sure you select the same type of subtotal by holding Ctrl button and clicking on the second subtotal row. The cursor should remain as the right arrow and row numbers for all of the subtotals of that type will become orange color.
3) Change font type, size, color, highlight, etc. as you normally would. The changes will affect all of the subtotals immediately.
4) If you have multiple subtotals, repeat for the other group(s), giving them different highlights/fonts/whatever.
