I have created several custom views, and they seem to work fine after using/exiting/saving.

However, if I try to add a freeze pane within the custom view & save it that way, the next time I try to open the view, I get an error message that says "some view settings could not be applied."

There is no protection set on the workbook or any worksheets.
I have no custom VBA code or macros in the workbook, it's just an off-the-shelf use of Excel.

Any ideas on 1) is the use of the freeze panes really causing this and 2) how to get around it?
