If it is for a normal grid you could do something like this

procedure TForm1.StringGrid1SelectCell(Sender: TObject; ACol,  ARow: Integer; var CanSelect: Boolean);
begin
  CanSelect := ACol = YourCol;
end;

I think that approach also won't highlight the fixed-row (in the most left part of DBGrid) as when we manually hold ctrl key and click the fixed-row to select rows.

I'm so sorry, that is a wrong post. Actually I want to post it in another topic.

My real comment is ... ... ...,
My type of grid is DBGrid. I didn't find a OnSelectCell event in DBGrid.

What should I do now?

Oops, sorry. The event is not available on the DBGrid. What you ask is not possible with a DBGrid.
