I want to have two sets of figures on the same sheet. I only want to scroll up/down on one set, or the other, at a time. Can Calc do this?

Freeze rows and columns is not the same as split screen. To Freeze a column, click the column to the right of the columns you want frozen, Then "Window - Freeze Rows and Columns" does the trick.

In my own testing just now, this will work using split screen, if your two sets of figures are above and below each other and not beside each other.

Navigate to the row where you want to split the screen and click on the left-most cell, then click the Split Screen button on the button bar OR click Window on the menu bar at the top and select Split Screen.

Now your work area will be split horizontally and you will be able to scroll each section (upper and lower) independently.

I know that doesn't quite do what you are asking for, but might do the trick if repositioning your figures is not a big deal.
