Disabling mouse wheel in a subform

P: 6
I fished through previous posts and found this link to microsoft's site for the code and steps to disable the mousewheel from scrolling through records:;en-us;278379

It worked for my main form (Creator) with no problems. I copied the 3rd section of code (please refer to link) which is form-specific to the subform (Reports). When i open the subform (Reports) on its own, the msgbox saying you can't use the mouse wheel pops up, and i can use my navigation buttons to scroll through records. However, when i access these navigation buttons when i open my main form (Creator), the buttons on the subform (Reports) do not work.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

I usually use Stephen Lebans mousehook.dll rather than microsofts fix. I find it very effective.
