Follow these steps to freeze panes in a worksheet:

A. Select the cell cursor based on what you want to freeze:

  1. Columns: Select the column to the right of the columns you want to freeze. For example, click any cell in column B to freeze column A.
  2. Rows: Select the row below the rows you want to freeze. For example, click any cell in row 4 to freeze rows 1, 2, and 3.
  3. Columns and rows: Click the cell below the rows and to the right of the columns you want to freeze — essentially, the first cell that isn't frozen. For example, click cell B2 to freeze both column A and row 1.
