Mouse scroll wheel scrolling records instead of scrolling form

    Using access 2002, I have a form that is long and needs to be able to
    scroll with the mouse wheel. Instead, the mouse wheel scrolls through
    the records. How can I make the mouse wheel scroll the form instead of
    scrolling through the records?

    Thanks,

    David

    I'd strongly suggest creating a tabbed interface and grouping related
    fields and subforms onto each tab. It's much easier for the users to
    work with that kind of interface.

    That is the function of the mouse wheel. You can turn it off (search
    this NG on the topic and you can find the module to turn the wheel off)


    OR

    In this thread, you will see that he stumbled onto a hardware solution
    to the mouse wheel.

    It's the software for the mouse (and incidentally the
    keyboard). The setup facility in the mouse software (not the microsoft
    mouse
    settings in control panel) has a "system default ,(intelimouse)"
    option and
    a setting called "enhanced scroll mode". It doesn't explain what
    exactly
    "enhanced scroll mode" is, but when that option is selected the wheel
    scrolls
    inside the form. When "system default "is selected it scrolls between
    records. This is the case even when I connected a conventional (cable
    and
    rollerball) mouse. Might be worth talking with the manufacturers and
    see if
    they can explain. from what you've said there might be a whole new
    market for
    their product!

    Sure. But I'd still use a tabbed interface as it's much easier for
    the users to work with.

    Tony, I agree, 150% on using the tabed form. It looks more
    professional, AND is easier to navigate.

    However, even with a smaller tabbed form the mouse scroll can be
    annoying. It was just something I came across a couple of month's ago.
