There's a FAQ on this...well, I thought there was !
This is the text I retained:
Often, people ask how to make a tableFrame behave like a
tableView, in that you can freeze some columns at the left of .a
Arrange your two table frames beside each other so they look
like one (cosmetics !). Call the frozen one "tfStatic and the
other one tfDynamic.
Enclose them in a box, and declare two uiObjects in the Var of
the box - uiStaticTF and uiDynamicTF. In the open() of the box,
attach the uiObjects to their tableFrames.
In the action() of each of the tableFrames place code that traps
all the necessary actions (DataBegin, DataEnd, DataFastForward,
DataNextRecord, .....), does a doDefault, and applies the same
action to the other uiObject. This is for tfDynamic :
if eventInfo.id() = DataBegin or
eventInfo.id() = DataEnd or .....
This should keep things in sync.
PS I found it - it's in the Forms Tip of Paradox Tips on my own
