Is it possible to store an excel file that is formatted with frozen panes in a SharePoint gallery or library and have the user that clicks on it see the frozen panes? I can't find a clear answer that states whether or not it is possible for this to happen.

Hello,

an Excel file with frozen panes will show the frozen panes when opened. It does not matter if the file is stored in a SharePoint library, a file server folder or anywhere else.

cheers, teylyn

Well, currently the file is in a sharepoint gallery and is opened in the web browser. The panes are not frozen after the file loads. If I save the file and store it locally, the panes are frozen.

Do you know of a work around for this, except for downloading and storing the file locally? Thanks!

Ah, this is Web Excel. It does not have the same functionality as desktop Excel and many Excel features will not work.
