How to select a piece of a track for adding effects to it?

Hi brothers and sisters…

I use LE5 and am not able to figure out how to add effects to just a portion of a track.

When I try to do this - the whole track is being effected with the effect, not just the area that I selected to receive the effect.

Please advise me on how I can accomplish the task of applying effects to areas of my choosing within a track… thank you sincerely - frank :sunglasses:
