I'm trying to insert columns but when I select a column, adjacent columns are also selected.
When I try to insert, I get the mssg:
"That command cannnot be used with selections that contain entire rows or columns, and also other cells. Try selecting only entire rows or columns or just groups of cells."

I need to "un-do" the memorised pre-select of multiple columns.
Anyone know what I am talking about?
