I just need to freeze the top 3 rows in a spreadsheet. Easy: select the 4th row, click 'Freeze Panes' and choose the 'Freeze rows' option. Except that the option isn't there - the only option offered is to freeze the top row.
I am using Office 365, so my Excel is a current version. And I am working in Normal View. So I don't understand why I cannot freeze multiple rows any more!
Unfreeze the rows/columns. Then if you want to freeze more than the top and more than the first column, go to the cell below the row you want to freeze and after the column you want to freeze and the select Freezes panes.
Absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much. I've used Excel for more than 20 years and I'm pretty sure this method is new - or, at least, newish. But it's great to find out there really is a way. Thank you for pointing the way.
