select detail section

How do you select the entire contents of just the detail section in an Access report ? It seems I can select the entire report (which I don't want) OR I have to select every control in the detail section individually while holding the Shift key down.
This may not seem like a big program however I have nearly a hundred controls (including hidden ones) in my detail section.

Copying the report and pasting it to another report does not solve my problem either.  My problem is that I want to insert a control
between 2 other ones which are touching each other and the only way I know to do this is to select ALL the controls after the new control and move them down. As I said before, I have about 100 controls in the detail section. If I could select the entire detail section (without selecting the whole report) it would significantly decrease the amount of effort required.

I don't know if that's what you want, but I can select anything I want in the detail section (or anywhere else) by clicking on an empty spot, keeping button pressed and dragging until everything is selected.

Yes that was what I wanted - The answer was very helpful - The only comment I have is that it would have been clearer to specify that by dragging the mouse, a rectangle would be created etc....

Thanks
