    Unanswered: Disabling Mouse Wheel?

    Does anyone know how to temporarily disable the mouse wheel either in a specific form, or in the entire database? I don't want to disable the mouse wheel globally in the system, just in my application, or specific forms.

    the information I found in other threads was very useful for the local database. However, the issue I am currently faced with is how do I distribute this solution to a remote end user in a manner that is simplistic enough for a non-techie to follow? Unfortunately, not all users are going to be comfortable enough to save a .DLL file to the Windows\system32 folder, even with detailed instructions. i know it sounds ludicrous, but there are such users out there. I suppose I could write a batch file to automate the installation, or use the Developers Edition to package the end product, but I was looking for more of a simplistic, self-contained solution that could be delivered within a single database file.

    Mouse wheel

    There are a couple of good posts (recently) on this. Do a search on this forum for Mouse Wheel and I think you'll find a couple of good alternatives. I tried using the post which references a dll and an API call and it worked great but I think someone else also recently posted some code which doesn't reference a dll. Attached is what someone else posted - which references a dll and it worked great (just had to put the dll in the same folder of the mdb).
