I have a column of names with a bunch of information in subsequent columns,

but I want to be able to see the names column no matter how far over I scroll

in the worksheet, and haven't been able to figure out where to set that.

Thanks,

    • Window...split...then highlight the rows and cols you always want to

      see...and freeze them.

      Enjoy!

    • Hmm, That definitely has the effect that I want, but for some reason I can't

      get it to freeze just the column I want - it's freezing some other columns as

      well.

    • John notes a neat trick in his response (I will have to try that one out -

      thanks :) )

      With the split option, you have to drag the additional frames around and

      frame up what you want on the left and the top (i am assuming that is the

      location of the names and title row labels. Ctrl+click the columns and rows

      (the header letters and row numbers) you want to keep visible (in the

      leftmost and topmost frames) and freeze.

      GL!
