How to use freeze panes feature in Microsoft Excel to keep an area on spreadsheet always visible
A major issue usually faced by people while working with a lot of spreadsheet data is remembering which row and column represents what data. Now, remembering something in a small spreadsheet is not an issue. However, we are talking about over 10 rows and columns at a time where once you start scrolling through data, the header row or column disappears and makes it hard to figure out which row or column represents what value.
