Set Focus to a sub form on mouseover

I am working on a form that has several subforms.  The user selects items from the subforms to help build a query.  Is there a way to change the focus to a subform simply by moving the mouse over it? Thus allowing the scroll wheel to scroll through the list of selections?  As the mouse moves to a different subform, the scroll wheel would then scroll through the selections on that subform.

Try using the On Mouse,
Then specify the .left and .top of each subform,
then use the select case OR if statement to set focus on the first field in the subform, like this

if xxx.left= n1 and yyy.top=n2 then
 Forms![MainFormName]![SubformName].Form![FieldNameInSubform].setfocus
elseif xxx.left= nn1 and yyy.top=nn2 then
....
endif

Couple of questions, I have never worked with plotting mouse positions before.
I assume the n1 n2   and nn1  nn2  are the tops and lefts of my subforms.  dint I also have to use the heights and widths?
also how do I determine my mouse position?  is that the xxx.left and yyy.top?  how do I declare these variables?
I also don't see the "on mouse" option, do I use "on mouse move"?
