I have a simple table view. Is it possible to add a vertical scroll at the side, but keeping the column titles in view. I tried the infinate scroll in advanced section but this didn't seem to work. I have also tried adding: <div style="overflow-y:auto;"> to the before section of the view. But this didn't work.

You may need to apply the overflow to the table body element, not the div. See this example: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17067294/html-table-with-100-width-with-vertical-scroll-inside-tbody

Sorry I'm a newbie, where would one find the table body element?

If you created a table view, you would have had to add it to your HTML. You're writing the table code.

Thanks for your reply.
So do you mean when I add the view to the page. I then add html there. So not when I am creating the view in formidable forms. Sorry I am a non-coder, so its difficult understanding this.

You said you were using a table view, right? Table views are built with the standard HTML table structure. You can add a CSS script that adds the scroll to your tbody element in the before fields area on the view build screen.
