Anyway, at least, as you've said, it's pretty easy to select groups of cells by just specifying first and last cell in a range. So it's not the end of the world but it's nice to know I'm not losing the plot

Makes you wonder if the people who write these help files have ever actually used the thing doesn't it !!

Thanks again. I can stop scratching my head now Smile

It's not exactly what you are asking for, but sometimes it is easier to copy on the "command line" rather den selecting cells or groups of cells.
If you want to copy the contents from column B to column D,
enter D1:=B1:B9999 in the spreadsheet app.
You can also modify this command, if you want to copy the formula, or alle information.
copy only formula: D1(1):=B1:B9999(1)
