Access 2003 while viewing code doesn't scroll

P: n/a
Does anyone have any idea why Access's module editor doesn't scroll with the
mouse. I noticed this behavor in Access 2k also. While viewing code in a
module (or any thing for that matter) the wheel mouse does not scroll the
window.

Scott, what type of mouse and driver version are you using? I had the
same problem with my Logitech Cordless Mouseman Optical until I went
back to an older driver.

I also have a Cordless Logitech mouse on my notebook (different model
than that mentioned above) which I can't get to scroll in the code
window. I don't use the notebook much for development work, so I
begrudgingly live with the problem.

Regards.

If Microsoft (or compatible) mouse, try the Intellipoint software,
version 4 works with VB/VBA windows, version 5 doesn't (or at least
didn't last time I tried).

That's exactly what I am using, a Logitech cordless. I didn't install any
drivers and let windows determine the best drivers. What specific driver did
you use to resolve this issue?

Thanks,

Scott

Version 5.0 and 5.2 don't appear to work in the A97, 2000, 2003 VBA
window.

Version 4.12 works fine but doesn't list my new Wireless Intellimouse
Explorer 2.0 mouse and doesn't support the horizontal scrolling :(
Hmmm... which is more important? Probably being able to scroll in the
VBA window.

You don't need horizontal scrolling, use "_" to split lines :-)

Yep I do that (Am using a widescreen laptop too.. so lots of room).

The problem I found is my other mouse buttons don't work because the old
drivers don't support my new mouse. I use the wheel button as
double-click all the time.

I contacted Logitech customer service and they gave me the canned response.
"There is no known issue with Logitech products with Access". I thought I
just told them. ;-)

LogiTech's MX-1000 mouse cause Forte's Agent to abend when the horizontal scroll
is invoked. LogiTech, of course, is totally opaque to any report of same.

In a similar vein, when I was still naieve enought to call Earthlink's support
lines, I got really tired of hearing "There are no problems with the Earthlink
system..."... At least they could have said "....no *currently-known*
problems....".

I use the scrollwheel fix from
http://www.joebott.com/vb6scrollwheel.htm
I was directed to this utility by Microsoft Support who could not
solve the problem. It works a treat!

It restores scolling in the VBE in A2K and above.
It does not work for A97 ;-(

From their site:-
How It Works:

Using Spy++, I found that the code windows were getting
WM_MOUSEWHEEL events, but no WM_VSCROLL messages were being fired. So,
I wrote a simple message hook that fires the scrolling events when it
catches mouse wheel events.

I know from Spy++ that the code window's class is "VbaWindow", so
I can use that to make sure that I only process those events. I just
use the GetClassName function on each message's HWND, and ignore
anything from anything but the VB6 code window.

Then, I just need to send WM_VSCROLL messages to the window. But
since the window's scrollbars have their own HWND, I need to find
those first. So, I use the FindWindow function to find child windows
with the class name "ScrollBar". If I find one, then I use
GetWindowLong to retrieve the window's style. If the style has the
SBS_VERT bit set, then I know I have the correct scrollbar. And that's
it in a nutshell!
