    Freeze Panes - Can I freeze a specific set of cells?

    Good Morning,

    I am currently working on a spreadsheet which shows our product sales for the last 3 years. (attached)

    My problem lies when I try to freeze the panes from Cell E30 on 'Door' (ignore 'All' that is my figures sheet)

    I freeze the panes, this holds Row 29 in place, Which I Want.

    But upon holding colum E as I try to scroll to the right, the line chart moves with it.

    My question is:

    Is there a way I can scroll through the figures, keeping columns A-C in place(D is hidden) and allowing the line graph to stay in view?

    Many Thanks
    Ross

    Hi

    Edit your Quick access toolbar. Select all commands and scroll down to select Camera.

    Having put the camera on your toolbar, select a range that you want to see at all times, click the camera icon and click where you want the image to appear. If the original range values change then the image changes as well.

    It may not do exactly what you want as you cannot enter values in the image, but it's a way of monitoring ranges, without freezing columns and rows.

    Chris

    When Freezing panes what cell are you selecting? If it's A30 then this just freezes the top rows if you select E30 then all the rows above 30 are frozen and all the columns A-D are also frozen.

    Is this what you want?

    Hi Chris,
    I am selecting Cell E30 so colums A-D are from and all rows above are froze aswell.

    My issue is that when i click left on the scroll bar, the graph moves with it, So I lose part of the graph with each left click.

    I want everything above row 28 to stay completely visible.

    Many Thanks
    Ross
