Selecting Objects

Selecting objects in Excel conforms to standard Windows practices. You can select a range of cells by clicking and dragging (it's more efficient to learn the keyboard shortcuts, however). Clicking an object that has been placed on the drawing layer selects the object. To select multiple objects or noncontiguous cells, press Ctrl while you select the objects or cells.

Note Clicking a chart selects a specific object within the chart. To select the chart object itself, press Ctrl while you click the chart.

If an object has a macro assigned to it, you'll find that clicking the object executes the macro. To actually select such an object, right-click it and press Esc to hide the shortcut menu. Or press Ctrl while you click the object.
