"Freeze panes" in Word 2010?

Hi,

Please see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Word/Q_27867321.html 

I would like to have a top column which, just as in Excel 2010, freezes ("freeze panes"). Is that possible?

J.

Thanks, but not what I'm looking for. When you re-open the document, the split is gone. It should stay there.

Put your top column information into a page header. Headers are section-dependent, so if you don't want it on your starting page, specify "Different first page" in the Layout tab of your Page Setup, then define the 1st page header as empty and teh subsequent one(s) with your top column info.

Thanks but that looks really clumsy/not professional.
It's just not possible to do this I guess. Thanks anyway.

Why would it look clumsy or not professional? It would depend on how you set it up.

I've used this method many times for tabular material that extend over many pages to get past the limitations of the "repeated headings" table feature. (i.e. using field codes to populate the heading with STYLEREF content for phonebook-like references, or logic like "Table 3 continued" and "End of Table 3").

To make it look like part of the text body, add space above the content to push it down into the body area. Your normal page header content could then continue in the same location above teh column headings.

Connecting cleanly to the vertical lines in your example could cause some problems, but you could get around that by setting them as an object placed behind the text within the header.
