    When I create a new record (on a form) and accedently touch the wheel on my
    mouse, I end up srolling between the record I want to complete and a new
    record. How can I lock my form to only the form I'm working on?

    You need to install the Mousewheel.dll. You'll find it and instructions how
    to use it at:

    Thank you Ken. This seems to be the solution I was looking for.

    Hi Ken and Sentry,

    Stephen Lebans offers an alternative that you might like better:
    MouseHook
    http://www.lebans.com/mousewheelonoff.htm

    "No more MouseWheel.DLL Hell! No DLL registration required. The MouseHook
    DLL is a standard Windows DLL. Do not try to Register it or set a Reference
    to it from within Access. Just copy the included MouseHook.DLL into your
    Windows/System folder or into the same folder as your application MDB. One
    instance handles all Forms and SubForms so only call the functions once from
    a SINGLE Form."

    Also:
    "Hi Tom,
    the MouseWHeelHook solution on my site does use a DLL but it is a
    standard Windows DLL written in C++. It is not an ActiveX object so no
    registration is required. Just copy it into the same folder as your MDB
    or the System folder.
