Mouse Wheel in Text Box w/Scroll Bars.

P: n/a
On one of my forms I have a text box sized and shaped to display
multiple lines. The max content of the field is such that the text box
may display less than all of the data in the field. Therefore I have
the vertical scroll bar enabled for the text box object. When a user is
working with this form and that text box has focus, I would like the
wheel mouse to scroll the content of that field rather than scroll
through the records on the form. Any way to do this?

Thanks!

If you open the property sheet of the form, Other tab/Cycle, is it set
to AllRecords or CurrentRecord? I don't see why a control with focus
would make any difference on a scroll wheel, but then I don't use
one...so my response is basically guessing on a possible solution.
