How To: Select a continuous group of records in a table window


In ArcView GIS 3.x and ArcGIS, a continuous group of records are selected in a table by holding down the Shift key and dragging over a set of records. The steps for performing the same task in ArcMap are described in this document.


  1. Click and hold the mouse button down on the left column adjacent to the first record you want to select.
  2. Drag the mouse up or down to select records.

    Each record the mouse moves past is added to the selection. If you hold down the Ctrl key while repeating the steps above, you will add to the current selection.
