Scrolling records - Mouse buttons

P: n/a
In a form, how do I disable the mouse wheel button from scrolling
through records? I have disabled the navigation buttons at the button
of the form and don't want a user to be able scroll through records by
moving the middle wheel button

If possible can you tell me the option in the menu rather than the
code as I'm not very good at it

Thanks
Denis

This cannot be done through an option in the menu.

The only possibility is to use a dll. Drawback of this is that you'll
have to register that dll on each computer using your application. For

Stephen Lebans has produced a solution which uses a standard Windows DLL which
does not need to be registered. Simply copy the DLL to the system folder OR the
folder containg the database.
