Prevent users from cycling through records using their mouse pinwheel

100+
P: 139
Hi,

I've created a database which shows the usual record button bar at the bottom of the form to cycle through records.

However when editing a particular record my users are accidently touching the pinwheel on their mouse, causing it to cycle to the next record (or even further). They don't notice of course and edit the wrong record.

Is there anyway I can lock the form so that they can only edit the current record and not cycle to any others?

Thanks
Neil
