I have a data sheet with many columns and It  would really help for the users to have  function similar to the
"Window - Freeze Panes" function in excel where the first 2 or 3 columns are fixed and you can scroll to the right but these columns stay put

It's available on the Format Menu .... and you could also add it to the Right Click menu ... and/ or create your own menus easily:

Everything you need is here ... see this link:

Not sure it that article mentions it, but ... when you are in the Customize mode (dialog) ... if you hold down the Control key, you can drop and drag (ie, copy) menu items from one place to another ... handy for making a new menu that is similar another one.

Not as standard functionality
I guess you could roll your own using a couple of buttons to replace the standard scrollbar. For the set of columns that can scroll, hide columns on one side an show them on the other to simulate scrolling.

I stand corrected. I missed that entirely.

For example, if you open a Table in datasheet view, on the Format menu you will see Freeze / Unfreeze columns.  So, if you use your mouse to select the first 2-3 columns ... and then click Freeze ... you are Frozen!   Same applies if you have a form open in Datasheet view.  You can easily add those commands to a new toolbar and/or a right click menu ... using the info above.
