Assuming the 2000 you want to select are listed consecutively, place the cursor in front of the first one, scroll to the last one, hold "shift", and place the cursor at the end of the last one. This will select all data between the two cursor placements. If the addresses are all mixed up in the document, then your only choice may be to highlight each one individually while holding the "Ctrl" key through the whole process. Might I suggest you do 100 at a time using that method. That way you don't waste a lot of time selecting almost all of them, then an errant click erases all your selection work. Been there... infuriating ...

 

Or better yet, import all the addresses into a better program for sorting and selecting, like Excel or Access


After the game, the King and the Pawn go into the same box...

If you don't have Excel you almost certainly don't have Access installed either as they are both parts of the MS office suite. However you could install one of the free office suites such as Open or Libre Office both of which contain spreadsheet packages very similar to Excel. the Libre Office spreadsheet application is called 'Calc' and it has similar data sorting and selecting functions as Excel does.

 

Both of these office suites are free downloads -

 

Open Office :-   https://www.openoffice.org/

Libre Office  :-   http://www.libreoffice.org/
