Cell Bordering

Works version 2.00 can outline a cell or range of cells to call attention to important information, using the Borders command on the Format menu.

Freezing Titles

You can freeze selected rows or columns horizontally or vertically so that they won’t scroll. This is useful for keeping headings on the screen when scrolling through a Spreadsheet document. The Freeze Title commands are included in the Options menu.
