    mouse wheel (Access 2003)

    I have an unbound form which is quite long. However, when I use the mouse wheel to scroll, the form does not scroll up or down. Anyone has any suggestion?

    Thanks

    Here's a nice little utility I use, works with all applications including VBE and Visual Basic

    It is better to NOT have long forms that require scrolling. The use of a tab control simplifies moving from section to section on the report and does not require the mouse to navigate.

    thanks for all the advices. Does anyone know what is the limit on the max number of controls (textboxes, buttons, etc) that we can have on a form?

    Thanks again,

    I think 355 ? but I wouldn't like to use a form with so many on.
    A form should be visible to the user, if you have to scroll down or across then I would either re-design, or possibly use a tabform.

    According to the 'Access specifications' subject in the Access help, you can create at most 754 controls on a form or report during its entire lifetime. This means that once you reach the limit, you won't ever be able to add new controls any more, even if you remove most of the existing ones. The only workaround is to create a new form or report, and copy only the controls you need from the old one to the new one.

    The problem with that freeware FreeWheel is that you will be downloading a stupid program called WhenU. This program is worse than a spyware. It has a lot of popups. No way to stop the popups because it does not use your brower to popup a msg.
