    Mouse Wheel (Access2000/Access 2003)

    Hi,
    A form I wrote has a problem. THe client just got a mouse with a wheel on it. When they are on my add form and use the wheel. A record is created and many of my edits are not done. Then they get a blank form. I have not found a way to stop the mouse wheel from causing this situation. Any ideas, I hope (fingers crossed)??
    One person said I should use a Windows API to stop the wheel from working. I am afraid if I did that and the Access program canceled for any reason, I would get calls that I had disabled the mouse wheel for all windows applications. I do not need that kind of headache.
    Thanks,
    Sarge

    Hi Sarge,
    You might want to start with these links. I've used a few examples from Stephen Lebans access website, all with success. The last link is an example based on his MouseHook.dll......

    Fwiw... re: Leban's mouse wheel dll solution (which I used to my satisfaction): be aware to move the dll along with the database and/or have it placed in every user's Windows/System folder... and/or include some lines in the VBA procedure's error handling to deal with the situation when the dll is lacking for some reason.
    Take care!
