How to split a worksheet into multiple panes in Excel?

There is a very useful feature called Split Panes in Excel which can separate the worksheet into more than one copies so that you can view and compare the data at the same time. Now I will introduce how to split a worksheet into panes in Excel.

There is a very handy method to split worksheet into panes which just needs to drag the split pane to the location you want to split.

Split worksheet into panes horizontally

1. Put the cursor at the split bar which is located above the scroll arrow at the top of the vertical scroll bar. See screenshot:

2. Then when the cursor pointer changes to a double-headed arrow with a split in its middle, drag it to the location you want to split the worksheet, and then release the cursor. See screenshot:

Split worksheet into panes vertically

1. Put the cursor at the split bar which is located next to the scroll arrow at the right of the horizontal scroll bar. See screenshot:

Another way to split worksheet into panes is using the Split button under View tab.

1. Select the row you want to insert the split pane above it firstly. See screenshot:

Tip: If you want to insert vertical split pane, you can select a column you want to insert the split pane left to it.

2. Then click View > Split, and you can see the split pane is inserted into the worksheet. See screenshot:

doc-split-to-panes-6

Tip: If you want to insert a cross split pane into a worksheet, select a cell that you want to insert horizontal split pane above and the vertical split pane left to, then click View > Split. See screenshot:

Note: If you want to clear the split panes, just double click the pane you want to delete, then it will be removed.

    I use excel to display a Booking calendar for my business. We split the worksheet into two, one side being the inventory we carry and the other being the calendar portion of the worksheet. This allows us to scroll up and down to select the item, and then left and right to see if the item is available for a client (Each cell horizontally being 1 day of the year on the secondary split). This works great, but when you search for an item in the Inventory section using the Find function, it resets the view of the Calendar section back to the beginning. Is there any way to avoid this?
