Hi :)

I think Bill was asking how to keep a few rows in the middle of the
spreadsheet frozen with areas above and below that could be scrolled
through?  if so then i don't think it's possible even in Gnumeric let
alone Calc or Excel.

It is possible to freeze everywhere above and to the left of a chosen
point though and that's what people have given.

It is also possible to use
Window - Split
but again you only get 2 areas rather than 3.  This way allows both
the top and the bottom areas to be scrollable though.

i think the
Window - Freeze
is best for what you seem to want.  There is an extra wrinkle which is
that you can scroll all the way down, before applying the freeze, so
that the only rows visible on-screen are 35 and below.  Then do the
freeze by placing the cursor in row 41 (probably B41 so that the A
column will also be frozen) and then choose
Window - Freeze

Of course this last way you would never be able to see anything above
row 35 until you unfrozen the window but that is very trivial for
people to do.

Regards from
Tom :)

To be more specific:

If you only want to keep the column labels visible, put the cursor in the far
left column (before column A) on row 2 then go to the Window menu item and
select freeze. All column headers in row 1 will stay visible as you scroll
everything below them. If you don't go to the far left column it will still
work, but make a darker line to the left of the column that you selected. I
don't know any way to keep just one or several columns frozen and scroll the



Place cursor underneath row you want to stay still.

Hi All,

Thanks for responding to my call for help. Here is the situation: I
have a LibreOffice Cal sheet with rows 1-34 with text. Rows 35-40 with
titles above 7 colums.
Rows 41-100 is entries.

I would like to modify document so that rows 35-40 stay fixed when I
scroll down to say column  100.

This way the titles of the seven columns would always be visible. I
know this can be done.

What formula would I use and where would I put that?

Many thanks in advance
