I usually create a separate header field for the both the top header and 
the side header. Then use either a single table field for the data, or 
several individual fields. Once you get it all set up, group the whole 
business and set the group to have both vertical and horizontal 
scrollbars. You don't need to script any scrolling commands, since the 
headers will scroll in sync along with the group.
