Have you ever encountered a situation where you had heaps of data with many many rows and you needed to see the headers at all times?

Just like me, I am sure you have 🙂

There is a way in Excel that will allow us to freeze panes so that the column headings are visible whilst we are scrolling down our data.

I explain how you can Freeze Panes in Excel below:

DOWNLOAD EXCEL WORKBOOK

STEP 1: Go to View > Freeze Panes > Freeze Top Row

This will freeze the Row 1 of your sheet:

Try scrolling down, the first row is always visible!

 

STEP 2: To be able to undo the freezing is very easy! Go to View > Freeze Panes > Unfreeze Panes

You should now be able to scroll normally.

 

STEP 3: The next question is, what if it’s not the first row that you want to freeze? Say you want Rows 1 to 5 to be frozen?

Select the sixth row:

Go to View > Freeze Panes > Freeze Panes

All of the rows above Row 6 are now frozen!
