Having trouble using the scroll wheel on my mouse to broose through records in Filemaker

I have two copies of Filemaker - home and work. At home the scrolling mouse wheel works just fine (eg in browse mode to go through lots of records quickly) but at work I am unable to get the scrolling wheel to work. I have to click on the page icons < and > to move through the records.

Any ideas why?

That's not a filemaker problem... if the platform (mac/pc) is the same, compare your mouse setup on both, it is probably set differently, or one of the drivers may not support the same kind of scroll. Some are a page scroll, some are a lne scroll, for instance the logitech driver behaves differently from the microsoft one, but that of course depends on the mouse type on top!
In any case, you can scroll using the Ctrl arrow (up or dn) shortcut.
