I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hod down CTRL and click the row you want to deselect
I think deselcting using ctrl will only deselect the first cell.

the easier thing to do would be to hold control and select the ones you do want

hmm seems I was wrong
Hold control and click on the row number in the left margin.

@sysreq2000 we've already established that doesn't work
@ jacko - I can only test this in 2010, but holding control just allows you to select a cell in the selection without losing the rest of the selection

I thought was this would be easy.
in ged325's comment he gives a link which has some VB script which should work. haven't tested it though . .!

such simple things can be very complicated!

Yes sorry must be faulty memory your best bet is some vba as linked in ged325's comment.
