I apologize. I didn't understand your question. When you're in DESIGN VIEW you can click on an item (or group of items) and then hold down the CONTROL key to select additional items (contiguous or not).
I thought you were referring to ROWS of data, such as in a continuous form. Sorry... I read through and answer 20 or 30 questions some days and I miss details from time to time.
For some reason when I select multiple rows of objects in order to change the format for example Access deselects all additional rows. It does allow me to select 1 row of items such as labels, listboxes or whatever but it seems to want to deselect all additional rows. I'm not sure why this is happening. I am using Access 2010. This is a minor issue but any help with this would be appreciated.

In Access, you can either select individual rows one at a time or you can select a block of CONTIGUOUS rows (next to each other) but you can't select multiple non-contiguous rows with the CTRL key like you can in Excel.
