Freezing fields when scrolling

When you have a lot of table fields and would like to freeze your important columns as you scroll, it's easy to do. Open up your Customers table. When I scroll to the right to see my last data columns, I lose track of what record I am on. I want to scroll back to the left; we're going to lock the CustomerID and the Company in place. I'll click on my CustomerID field heading and drag across to Company. Then look over my mouse; I'll right-click on them and on the shortcut list is Freeze Fields. I'll click on it.

When I click off, I can see a blue line separating Company from Address, now when I scroll to the right, CustomerID and Company stay in place, while the rest of my fields move. When you want to turn off the Freeze, right-click on one of those two column headers again and choose Unfreeze All Fields. Now you're back to normal. Freezing Fields works just like it does in Excel, allowing you to hold fields in place, while the other fields move around them.
