    Scroll in a Text Box (Access2002(XP) SP3)

    Is it possible to somehow set the mouse wheel through code to scroll the contents of a text box? Right now when the wheel is used, it scrolls through the records on my continuous form, as would be expected. There is a text box with memo field contents that can be extensive. I have provided the users with an "on click" event that opens a report with the full contents of the text box, but they prefer to not leave the form and scroll within it. Is this possible?

    The text box control in Access doesn't react to the mouse wheel, unfortunately. If you want, you can disable the mouse wheel so that it doesn't scroll through records; see MouseWheelOnOff.

    Thanks Hans! Appreciate the info....I think I'll do the disable/enable routine for the user....if that is not to their liking, then they will probably accept using the standard text box scroll.
