Simple Access Entry form With SAVE and EXIT buttons on bottom of page.  However, when user is in form and they move the mouse wheel the form will add a blank record to underlying data table and move to that record.  I need to prevent this.  
The form has record control disabled.  There are multiple users.

Thanks.

Do you need to prevent any new record creation as part of the this specific form, or only record creation caused by the user scrolling?

Just prevent the accidental creation of new records caused by the scrolling.  We need to just save records (by clicking the Save Button) or Exit without Saving by clicking the exit button.

If all you need to do is save or exit, then you can turn off the ability to create new records within the form.  To do this, go into design view on the form, then go to the VIEW menu and select PROPERTIES.  On the DATA tab, change "Allow Additions" to No.
