With some hierarchies, you can select one or more hierarchy nodes. There are two reasons why you might want to select nodes:
The ability to perform either of these actions depends on whether the ABAP program you used to call SAP Hierarchy lets you.

If you want a special menu or display from the ABAP program, you have two methods available:
Releasing the SHIFT key on the last node closes the list so the ABAP program can respond with the desired menu or display.
A moving rectangle follows your movements. Move the mouse until the rectangle completely contains the desired section.
When you release the mouse button, all nodes inside the rectangle are selected.
