The last 3 lines of this code is how you setup FreezePanes
$Excel = New-Object -Com Excel.Application
$Excel.visible = $True
$Excel = $Excel.Workbooks.Add()
$wSheet = $Excel.Worksheets.Item(1)
$wSheet.Cells.item(1,1) = "This is my header"
$wsheet.application.activewindow.splitcolumn = 0
$wsheet.application.activewindow.splitrow = 1
$wsheet.application.activewindow.freezepanes = $true

Open in new window
