Selecting rows means highlighting one or more row(s) in the grid. The usual purpose is so that you can perform a certain activity on just the set of selected row(s).

How to select rows

To select a single row:

· Click on the row.

 The row will be highlighted, indicating that it is selected.

To select a range of rows:

· Click on the first row of the range.
· Scroll the grid, if necessary to bring the last row of the range into view.
· While holding down the Shift key, click on the last row of the range.

 The range of rows will be highlighted, indicating that they are selected.

 The selected rows will be highlighted.

Things you can do with selected rows

Here are some of the things you can do with selected row(s):

Limit the output of reports and exported files

Most reports and other types of output, such as exports of the grid’s contents to a spreadsheet, can optionally be limited to just the row(s) you have selected, if you wish.

Expand or collapse selected groups

If the grid is grouped, you can quickly expand or collapse just the selected parts (selected rows), without affecting the expansion state of other rows in a grid:

1. Select the rows you want to expand or collapse.

 For example, we could select these group rows to expand:
