The solution presented here seems to be the accepted solution web wide (a dll or class module that uses the windows API). I have implemented a simple solution that seems to be working well and would like to share it to 1) discover any unexpected problems OR 2) hopefully discover this is the solution we are looking for.

Here is the code I placed in the mousewheel event of the form:

Private Sub Form_MouseWheel(ByVal Page As Boolean, ByVal Count As Long)
If Count < 0 Then
    Me.Recordset.MoveNext
Else
    Me.Recordset.MovePrevious
End If
End Sub

There is a flicker but the recordset pointer stays put. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
John Andrew Morrison

John,

  It's a workable technique, but has the drawback of firing off all the events (Before and AfterUpdate if the record is dirty, and OnCurrent).  Using the Win API avoids all of those issues.

FWIW, here's a link to a site with a DLL and sample database that makes it all pretty easy to handle:

HTH,
