Scrolling jumps to text box with focus, why?

P: n/a
Hi All,

I've noticed that in a lot of my forms and tables, when I'm on
continuous view, I can't scroll when the focus is in a field or on a
control.

Meaning, if I have a list, and start scrolling, it always jumps back
to the focus the second the scrolling is done.

While I like this in some cases, it can get to be annoying. I try to
set my events so that I reset my focus to the record or to a control
in the header or footer. But, I don't know how to tell all my end
users to "select a record" or "use the scroll icons".

Is this "scrolling jump back to focus" thing a setting anywhere? I
believe I'm on Access 2003.

Thanks,

Jon

No, there is no such setting.
