Hi,

I've just started using Numbers. I've used Excel for years and there I used to be able to split the view such that in the upper part of the window I could see one part of the spreadsheet and in the lower half a different part of the spread sheet and navigate indepently around the sheet in each.

Is it possible to do this in Numbers? I like to be able to keep the column headings visible in the top split which might be the months of the year for example and then the main table in the lower split.

Thanks,

Dave.

    _Go to "Provide Numbers Feedback" in the "Numbers" menu_, describe what you wish.
    Then, cross your fingers, and wait _at least_ for iWork'11

    Hi Dave,

    You can't split a table into two or more panes, but you can Freeze Header Rows, which will keep the month names in view as you scroll through the rest of the table, provided the names are placed in a Header row.

    Regards,
    Barry

    Thanks I'll give this a try. Guess I just got too use to working with Excel.
