Good day. I am running Excel 2013 on Windows 10 Home. I have a workbook with 7 worksheets with several Macros. There is also a Macro in the "This Workbook" that runs every time the workbook is opened to set all the workbooks to a generic condition. Recently I discovered the need to use the Freeze Panes function to freeze Column 1 on 2 of the worksheets. All of the existing Macros use the same general formatting including freezing Row 1. How do I change the Macro in the 2 worksheets that require freezing Column 1 instead of Row 1? Any help is appreciated.
Thank you,
Dan Wilson...

Can you post the code that you are currently using & what are the names of the two worksheets?

Good day again Fluff. We have to stop meeting like this, people will talk. Here is one of the macros that needs to be modified. One is named RC and the other is named Riders. Except for the actual sort coordinates and the print coordinates, the macros are the same. Is it as simple as changing the ActiveWindow.FreezePanes to ActiveColumn.FreezePanes? Also, let me know if there is anything in the macro that does not need to be there.
Thank you, Dan Wilson...

Code:
Sheets("RC").Select
    ActiveWindow.FreezePanes = False
    ActiveWindow.View = xlPageLayoutView
    Application.PrintCommunication = False
    With ActiveSheet.PageSetup
        .LeftHeader = "Printed on &D"
        .CenterHeader = "Speedway Chapter 3399" & Chr(10) & "Road Captains 2019"
        .RightHeader = "Page &P of &N" & Chr(10) & "RC by Lead"
        .LeftFooter = ""
        .CenterFooter = ""
        .RightFooter = ""
        .LeftMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.7)
        .RightMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.7)
        .TopMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.75)
        .BottomMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.75)
        .HeaderMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.3)
        .FooterMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.3)
        .Zoom = 100
        .PrintErrors = xlPrintErrorsDisplayed
        .OddAndEvenPagesHeaderFooter = False
        .DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = False
        .ScaleWithDocHeaderFooter = True
        .AlignMarginsHeaderFooter = True
        .EvenPage.LeftHeader.Text = ""
        .EvenPage.CenterHeader.Text = ""
        .EvenPage.RightHeader.Text = ""
        .EvenPage.LeftFooter.Text = ""
        .EvenPage.CenterFooter.Text = ""
        .EvenPage.RightFooter.Text = ""
        .FirstPage.LeftHeader.Text = ""
        .FirstPage.CenterHeader.Text = ""
        .FirstPage.RightHeader.Text = ""
        .FirstPage.LeftFooter.Text = ""
        .FirstPage.CenterFooter.Text = ""
        .FirstPage.RightFooter.Text = ""
    End With
    Application.PrintCommunication = True
    ActiveWindow.View = xlNormalView
    Cells.Select
    With ActiveWindow
        .SplitColumn = 0
        .SplitRow = 1
    End With
    ActiveWindow.FreezePanes = True
    Range("A2:EJ36").Select
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("RC").Sort.SortFields.Clear
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("RC").Sort.SortFields.Add2 Key:=Range("D2:D36"), _
        SortOn:=xlSortOnValues, Order:=xlDescending, DataOption:=xlSortNormal
    With ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("RC").Sort
        .SetRange Range("A2:EJ36")
        .Header = xlGuess
        .MatchCase = False
        .Orientation = xlTopToBottom
        .SortMethod = xlPinYin
        .Apply
    End With
    Sheets("RC").Select
    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = ""
    Range("A1:K72").Select
    ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$K$72"
    Range("A1").Select
    With Selection.Font
        .Color = -16776961
        .TintAndShade = 0
    End With
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "RC sorted by Lead"
    Range("A1").Select
End Sub

OK, I tried what you suggested. That freezes the top 3 rows. What I want is to freeze Column A so that when I scroll to the right beyond Column BG, I will still see Column A on the left. Sorry if I didn't explain it correctly. Too bad there isn't a function "ActiveColumn.FreezePanes".
thank you, Dan Wilson...

Do you have any merged cells?
Because if you select B2 & freeze panes then row1 & col A should be frozen.

OK. There are no merged cells in the Riders worksheet. Row A has a height of 39 and Cell A1 is formatted as Wrap Text. It is used to advise the user of the sort method that was last chosen for the worksheet. Cells B1 thru F1 are blank. The ride numbers start at G1 through EA1 and have text aligned straight up and down so that all the ride numbers (19-xxx) fit in to the cell width of 2. Column A contains the rider names. Column B contains riders nicknames. Column C contains the rider membership status. Columns D and E contain formulas for total rider activity. Rows 2 and 3 contain totals of rider activity. Row 4 is totally blank for separation. Cells G6 thru EA205 contain rider activity (1 indicates attendance).

I removed the Wrap Text from Cell A1 and ran the macro with your suggestion. It eliminated Row 1 and froze Rows 2 and 3.
Thank you,
Dan Wilson...

Hadn't notice that you were using split screen, so why not just
Code:
    With ActiveWindow
        .SplitColumn = 1
        .SplitRow = 1
    End With
And get rid of the freezepanes.

Hi Fluff. I don't know what Split Screen is. Where did you find that?
Thanks, Dan...

It's in your code, I just suggested changing the red 0 to a 1
Code:
    With ActiveWindow
        .SplitColumn = [COLOR=#ff0000]0[/COLOR]
        .SplitRow = 1
    End With
