Multiple Selected Lines on a table

I have an application that iterates over the rows in a table and highlights the row that it is on. At the same time I would like to be able to edit rows farther down the table. Is there any way that I could leave one form of selected row on the iteration whilst I am editing another row?

As long as the selection mode for the table is set to “multiple interval”, and you use the Ctrl key when clicking to make the cell editable, it shouldn’t interfere with the other row selections.
