this line gets the correct subtotal sum based on a group, so considered removing the sum and placing
in a for-each would
somehow have it display correctly in the grid. This does not work. What happens is the 
correct subtotal is displayed on each line, instead of once per group.

<xsl:value-of select="format-number(sum(../Trade[Customer= current()/Customer]/Step),'###,###,###,##0')"/></b></td>

is there a more specific grouping idea which addresses the placement of the correctly 
summed subtotal amount?

Sounds like a classic grouping problem - see

Don't think of this as "process all the rows, outputting a subtotal whenever
I reach the last customer in a group". Think of it as "process all the
groups; for each group, output each row in the group and then the subtotal
for the group".
