I would like to stop the ability to scroll through records on a form by using the wheel on the mouse. Is this possible and how do I do this?

    PS.  mbizup's answer is about the only way you're going to do it.  There is no mouse wheel controls in Access.

    Glad this helped out.  
    FWIW, I believe this is no longer a problem in Access 2007.  My understanding is that the mouse wheel will scroll through records in continuous forms and datasheet view (which is nice), but not in single form view.
