Lock the first column for scrolling

If a table includes numerous columns, you might have to scroll in the sheet portion of the view to see them. But it's difficult to enter data in the correct cells when you can't see the task name column. You can keep a column in view by moving it to the first column and then selecting the Lock First Column option in the Table Definition dialog box.

To lock the Task Name column, in the Table Definition dialog box, click Name in the Field Name column and then click Cut Row. Click the first row in the Field Name list and then click Paste Row to insert the Name field in the first row in the list. Select the Lock First Column check box. The Task Name appears in the first column and does not disappear as you scroll.
