Unwanted scroll from mouse wheel in open form.

P: n/a
First, apologies iif this is an old problem. I do read this group,
but I may have missed it.
When I open a form in A2K to put data into a record (or create a
new record), all is well provided I do not touch the wheel on top of
the mouse. I can do anything else with the mouse, that is, move it
around the form and click on controls. But if I turn the wheel,
Access closes out the current form record and begins to scroll up or
down thru the other records in the table.
I would like to prevent the mouse from doing that. Is there an
Access command that temporarily disables the mouse wheel when you are
in an open form?
Thanks. Pete Brady
