You can use the mousemove event.  The following is the syntax.

Private Sub Form_MouseMove(button As Integer, shift As Integer, x As Single, y As Single)

x and y are the coordinates of the mouse pointer. The x and y values are always expressed in terms of the coordinate system set by the ScaleHeight, ScaleWidth, ScaleLeft, and ScaleTop properties of the object.

Try GetCursorPos.  You could view it using the API Text Viewer.  I haven't tried it yet but I guess it's the one you're looking for.
