How to Select Data
Data can be selected by highlighting fields in a rectangular block. Any number of fields can be highlighted.
Using the Mouse
Select the first corner of the data to be highlighted with the left hand mouse button and hold the button down. Drag the cursor, highlighting data as you go, to the opposite corner of the selected data then release the mouse button. Alternatively click and release on the first field to be highlighted then hold down either shift key and click and release on the last field to be highlighted. The rectangular block of fields between the two fields will be highlighted.
Clicking on the left most column (containing the record number) will highlight the entire record. Clicking and dragging in the record number column allows you to highlight multiple complete records.
Clicking on the top most row (containing the field names) will highlight that field for all records. Clicking and dragging in the top row allows you to highlight multiple complete fields.
Using the Keyboard
Data can also be highlighted using the keyboard.
See the keyboard commands for the data selection keys.
