Hi
I am trying to freeze panes on a large spreadsheet - Excel 2010
I am currently trying to freeze Columns A - J
and rows 1 - 188
when I select freeze panes (as per numerous videos/instructions I have found) and include it down to row 188 it still only freezes top 13 rows (all columns selected freeze though)
How can i get it to freeze ALL the rows?
There are no merged cells etc.

Shade all formula cells
To shade all formula cells: Home, Find & Select, Formulas to select all formulas. Then apply a light fill color.

Did you revert back to Normal View ?
You also might need to turn off the filters first !!

Welcome to the MrExcel board!

you'll see the freeze pane finishes at row 13
We can't really see that. What we can see is a dotted line there when normally a frozen pane is shown with a solid line. We can also see a similar dotted line above row 1 and you cannot have two horizontal frozen positions.

IF your sheet is frozen at row 13 then if you click the down arrow at the bottom of the right scroll bar rows 1:13 will still be visible but row 14 will disappear like below. Does that happen on your sheet?

With your sheet as shown in your first image, can you run this macro & report the result?
To implement ..
1. With your workbook active press Alt+F11 to bring up the vba window.
2. In the Visual Basic window use the menu to Insert|Module
3. Copy and Paste the code below into the main right hand pane that opens at step 2.
4. Close the Visual Basic window.
5. Press Alt+F8 to bring up the Macro dialog
6. Select the macro & click ‘Run’

VBA Code:
Sub test()
  MsgBox "Visible Frozen rows: " & ActiveWindow.Panes(1).VisibleRange.EntireRow.Address
End Sub
