Excel assistance required please

I have run a Lottery Syndicate since the very first draw (Saturday draw only).

Because of the amount of tickets we have (35) I have written a lottery checker in Excel.

I also have another worksheet with a record of all the drawn numbers, again Saturday only, which is now down to row 546. On the same worksheet (49 rows) is a formula which calculates the frequency that each number has been drawn.

At the moment those 49 rows are static and every week I enter the latest drawn numbers (today will be row 547) but to see the effect of the frequency check I have to hit Ctrl + Home to get back to the top of the worksheet. What I would like is for those 49 rows to follow me down the worksheet as I scroll. Does that make sense? If so can it be done?

Thank you.

If you select Row 50 and then Window | Split you should end up with the screen split, with each section having its own vertical scroll bar.

Good point VoG™, thanks. I have the window split to show the headings/titles anyway.

VoG™, just done that but even though I have the sheet showing at 80% I can only see the first 19 rows in the top half.

Have you tried dragging the grey horizontal split bar down the page?

You should be able to scroll both in the top and bottom windows. I don't see how you could be able to see all 49 rows in the top half without scrolling them.

VoG™, yes I can scroll in both windows. But I am sure I have seen an Excel spreadsheet where a particular portion (as a block) of the sheet follows down whenever scrolling. I must say that I am happy with the split screen as you suggested.

I think I will stick with the split screen.

Thank you.
