  3. Press and hold down the SHIFT key while you scroll the list and click the last item in the group. All the items in between will be selected.

To select a group of non-adjacent records:

  1. Display the list to select records from.

  2. Click the first item in the group of items you want to select.

  3. Press and hold down the CTRL key while you scroll the list and click all the other items you want to include in the group. Only the items you clicked on will be selected.

To select all records:
