Like SCA, I believe this is a shared file (with filters) issue, since it
doesn't seem to happen on non-shared files. Here's the problem:
I have a habit of freezing the top two rows in my
workbooks (with multiple
worksheets) so that column headings in row 1 and filters in row 2 are always
visible when I scroll down. In shared files only, the freeze frame will have
mysteriously jumped down to another row, for example row 100, when I first
open the file. In other words, when I first open the worksheet, I might see
rows 1 to 30 on my screen, but I can't scroll down because the freeze frame
is down at row 100. This can happen at odd times on all worksheets in a
workbook, or just some of them. So unfortunately, I often end up having to
reset the freeze pane under row 2 again for all or some of the worksheets.
Since there are only two of us in the office sharing these workbooks, I'm
confident that neither of us are inadvertantly changing the placement of the
frozen panes. Perhaps the fact that we are both filtering columns and saving
the shared workbooks is causing Excel to reset the freeze pane inadvertantly.
If someone could figure out this
problem it would be very helpful to me.
Shared workbooks are a powerful tool but I have to limit there use to just a
few power users, sothis problem really limits my ability to use shared
workbooks more broadly in my office.
