I have a problem with my work sheet.

the First 35 lines are data that is not needed to freeze, but there is that date row which I need to freeze, only that.

Since the list is very long over 2000 rows long I need the date to freeze so that when I scroll down the date remains frozen.

I have tried Menu View and clicked on freeze panes and selected Freeze panes only selected.

I only select what I need to freeze but the whole 38 rows freeze which are not relevant.

 

Is there anyone kindly who has a solution to the above.

 

Many thanks

Hi, Karol!

 

Use the split tool in View Menu at the ribbon.  Check this link for your support:

Blessings!

 

Hi there tried it,

 

It is not selecting what I need I just have one line of row that needs to be frozen.

 

It is freezing the whole top row as well

 

example from A12 to a 36 needs to be static the rest can go while scrolling down or up.

Hi, again!


Check this gif with split working.  Blessings!

@karol polubinski Took me a while to figure this one out too.  You want to select the row that is directly BELOW the data row you want to actually "freeze", and select "freeze pane".  Sounds counterintuitive, I know.  But it works.

I always wanted to freeze only the middle rows excluding the top rows in the spreadsheet. Finally, I could do it today. You scroll the spreadsheet down until you see the top of the rows you want to freeze and make sure you keep it on top in the spreadsheet and choose the row right below the last row you want to freeze and click on freeze panes.  This should work. You don't need to install anything.  @karol polubinski 

Freeze panes work only TOP and LEFT portion of the spreadsheet.
