    Vertical and horizontal scroll bars (Office 2K Win 2K)

    Dear All

    I've notice on my copy of Office 2000, in Excel and Outlook, the scroll bars don't move the screen when they are dragged. I mean if you right click the 'slider' and drag it the screen used to scroll up and down, still does in Word and Access, but not Excel or Outlook.

    This is only a minor annoyance in Outlook, but as I am not gifted with a wheely good mouse it is a real pain in the behind, especially in large Excel worksheets. Is there a cure for this, or am I doomed to moving the mouse those extra inches to get to a scroll button??

    Thanks for the help

    Ian

    "Live scrolling" is not available in Excel 2000, it was introduced in Excel 2002. There are many discussions about this in the Microsoft Newsgroups, but there doesn't seem to be a hidden setting (as there was in Word 97) that activates live scrolling in Excel 2000.

    I couldn't fnd anything about Outlook, but as fas as I can tell, Outlook 2002 offers live scrolling (didn't test everything, though.)

    If I understand your problem (Excel only), you have to press the SHIFT key while dragging the scroll box

    Hi John:
    That won't change the view of the screen until you release the mouse button. It simply makes the scroll bar accelerate. Livescrolling allows you to scroll the screen at the same time you drag the button on the scrollbar.
    Cheers,
