I have a PHP page that has a HTML table. I'd like my header to be a freeze pane (similar to how it works in Excel).

Can someone provide a PHP code example of how this could work?

You would create two tables. The first is the header. The second is within a div with overflow auto:

<table> ... your header ... </table>
<div style="height:200px;overflow:auto">
<table>
.. your content ..
</table>
</div>

Kind regards

Works... except that the header doesn't retain the column width. I can work with this method. Any other method? Just asking.
