In this practice session you'll freeze panes to see column or row titles stay in place, and then freeze both column and row titles at the same time.
You'll also have a chance to try something similar for printed pages. It's frustrating when readers have to flip back to the first printed page to find the titles that data refers to on subsequent pages. If you'd like to, you can try an exercise to learn how to keep titles in place when you print.
