    Unanswered: Scroll Text Box - not records

    Hi,

    If I select a text box I get vertical scroll bars, then I want to be able to use the scroll wheel on my mouse to scroll the text box...but if I use the wheel I scroll through records instead.

    Is there a way to let Access 2002 scroll the text box instead of records, using the scrolling wheel?

    I was able to do it on mine, make sure your IN the text box

    Go to your TABLE and make sure that field is set to MEMO.

    Then go back to your form and try it, makes sure you click in the field and nothing is highlighted. f it highlights everything, it may not scroll the field.

    There is a problem with this solution, I'm working on MySQL database so I'm not able to set the field to MEMO.

    Thanks for your reply anyway!

    check the following things

    in txtbox properties the under the format tab that verticle scroll bars are on and in the 'other tab' that the enter key behavior is set to new line in textbox oposed to default

    i can't help much more as my poor old decrepid (not to mention brand new) mouse don't have a wheel
