Arguments
object

The '>workbook to use

sheet

The name or index of the sheet on which to create a freeze pane

colSplit

Horizontal position of freeze (as column index or name)

rowSplit

Vertical position of freeze (as number of rows)

leftColumn

Left column (as column index or name) visible in right pane. If not specified, the default is leftColumn=colSplit

topRow

Top row (as index) visible in bottom pane. If not specified, the default is topRow=rowSplit

Note

To keep an area of a worksheet visible while you scroll to another area of the worksheet, you can lock specific rows or columns in one area by freezing or splitting panes.

When you freeze panes, you keep specific rows or columns visible when you scroll in the worksheet. For example, you might want to keep row and column labels visible as you scroll.

When you split panes, you create separate worksheet areas that you can scroll within, while rows or columns in the non-scrolled area remain visible.
