how do I create a docked row\column so that when I scroll down\right, I can still see that row?
"Freeze Panes" in the Window menu will do this.
To freeze the top row only (to keep your column headings visible), select A2 and freeze panes.
Selecting B2 instead will lock both Row 1 and Column A.
If it doesn't make sense yet, it will as soon as you try it :)
I know that the OP is Asking about Excel 2003, but when I searched for 2010 this is one of the first search results from Google, so I am going to post an answer for Excel 2010 and hope it Helps someone out when they are looking looking for help on this issue as well
I found it Very Difficult to figure out how to do this for the Top row and for a couple of Columns. I did figure it out however,
First Split the panes
and then move the large black Lines to the rows and columns that you want Static (or Fixed)
you can click
if your focus is in the are that is Static (Fixed/Locked) and try to scroll you will scroll only that pane.
