Lock Columns

You can lock a column in place so that when you scroll horizontally, the column remains visible. Highlight the columns and select Cols > Scroll Lock/Unlock. Note the following:

Hidden columns cannot be scroll locked.

The name of a locked column appears in italics in the Columns panel.

Scroll locked columns are moved to the left in the data grid. Once you unlock them, they are not moved back to their original locations in the data table, but remain on the left.

Columns remain scroll locked until you highlight the columns and select Scroll Lock/Unlock again.
