Hi,

I have a sample spreadsheet where I tried to freeze rows 1-20.  Only rows 1-18 froze.  ?

When applying the Freeze Panes, the cursor has to be in the row below where the freeze needs to occur and in the column to the right if also freezing columns.

For your sample, the cursor needs to be in F21 to freeze rows 1 - 20 and columns A - E.

I suspect you had selected F19 when applying the Freeze.

Unfreeze the panes.
Select cell A21.
Now select freeze panes.
This will freeze everything above and to the left of that cell.

Ah.  Which also explains why the VBA code didn't work.  Thanks!
