Selection$() returns varying information when the selection occurs in a table. The result varies depending on the content of the selection. Under some conditions, selection$() returns nothing.
Selection$() returns a null value if a single cell is selected or multiple cells are selected, including cell markers, and the end-of-row marker is not selected.
Selection$() returns a list of values for selections that include the end-of-row marker. List items are separated by a bar to indicate a cell break.
Selection$() returns the text of a cell if the contents of the cell are selected without the cell marker.
