I have a worksheet with a table, with columns 1 and 12. I would like to highlight columns 1 and 10.

This code doesn't work because only one column can be selected. Is there a way/trick that I can make this work?

Sub SelectColumns()

Dim ws As Worksheet
Set ws = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Orders")

ws.Select
ActiveWindow.zoom = 80

Dim lo As ListObject
Set lo = ws.ListObjects("Orders")

lo.DataBodyRange.Columns(1).Resize(, 1).Select
lo.DataBodyRange.Columns(10).Resize(, 1).Select

Set ws = Nothing
Set lo = Nothing

End Sub
