Can't select some rows after deletion above them

Please run the following test on the attached workbook which was created in Excel 2010:
1. Press the Help button
2. Now press it again to hide the Help. Actually, it is deleted.
3. Place the cursor in row 3, any column, and tap the down-arrow repeatedly. Everything should be normal until you reach row 11 when the background color changes. In row 13 the selection disappears. In reappears partially in row 27 and fully in row 28, with a shadow of the selection square remaining in row 27.
No such behavior can be observed while Help is visible (click the button again), nor if you restart Excel. The odd rows between 11 and 27 can be deleted to cure the problem but it will reappear after hiding the Help.
I have half a dozen sheets, all with the same problem, but it appears in different rows and seems to affect fewer rows, where the cursor disappears, when the Help is bigger. I am at a loss at how to deal with this problem. Any ideas?

It appears that the fault is caused by this code:-
        Set DelRng = Range(WsT.Rows(NlbInsRow), WsT.Rows(R - 1))
        DelRng.Delete

Open in new window

I have replaced it with the following and that cured the problem.
        For n = NlbInsRow To R - 1
            WsT.Rows(NlbInsRow).EntireRow.Delete
        Next n

Open in new window

I think this is a work-around rather than a cure and would like to award points for showing me how to set DelRng in a way that I can properly use DelRng.Delete.

Hi,

Just for information:

I opened your attachment in Microsoft Excel 2003 (with Service Pack 3) within Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) & (after conversion) no issues (as you described) were seen.  The workbook functions as expected.

I have attached the converted workbook so you can try re-opening in MS-Excel 2010.

BFN,

fp.

thank you fp. The converted workbook you attached shows the same irregularities as as the workbooks in which I have the code myself, and as described in my original post. I find it interesting, though, that the problem doesn't seem to crop up in Excel 2003.
I run Win 7 Home Edition (64-bit) on the laptop where I am currently testing.
