This is:

- [x] a bug report
- [ ] a feature request
- [ ] **not** a usage question (ask them on or

What is the expected behavior?

When I set a cell XY to freeze panes the following should happen:

  • Columns on left of X must freeze
  • Rows above of Y must freeze
  • Cell on the right of XY must be selected

What is the current behavior?

For example if I set freeze to D7 (from coordinates 4,7), the cell referenced to the freeze is G4 (from coordinates 7,4).
The "topLeftCell" is correctly set to this value (7,4).

What are the steps to reproduce?

Just try to freeze on D7 and the output will be freeze on 7,4.


use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Helper\Sample;
use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\IOFactory;
use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Spreadsheet;
use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Style\Color;
use PhpOffice\PhpSpreadsheet\Style\Alignment;


// Create new Spreadsheet object
$spreadsheet = new Spreadsheet();


// with coordinates: 

// with cell name:


If I change this code in file vendor/phpoffice/phpspreadsheet/src/PhpSpreadsheet/Writer/Xls/Worksheet.php:

        $y = isset($panes[0]) ? $panes[0] : null;
        $x = isset($panes[1]) ? $panes[1] : null;

to this one:

        $x = isset($panes[0]) ? $panes[0] : null;
        $y = isset($panes[1]) ? $panes[1] : null;

... all works ok.

Which versions of PhpSpreadsheet and PHP are affected?
