Experts,
I'm not very good at writing macros yet and was given some help. The code belows does not work. Here's my objective:

Row 5 in my spreadsheet is frozen.
In my spreadhseet R(5) C(0) I have a command button. The purpose for this to take me back to R(5) C(0) when is at other locations in my spreadsheet. I can get to my location but I havefigured out how to automatically rescroll where the spreadsheet has been restored just as if I had opened it. Here's my attempt:

Sub Home()
Dim rng As Range
Set rng = Month Total("A5:A80").RefersTo
    rng.Parent.Select
    rng.Select
ActiveWindow.ScrollColumn=1
ActiveWindow.ScrollRow=1
Set rng = Nothing
End Sub

I think you mean something like:

Sub Home()
   With ActiveWindow.Panes(2)
      .ScrollColumn = 1
      .ScrollRow = 6
   End With
   Range("A5").Select
End Sub

Open in new window
