Hi Experts.

How can I prevent the mouse wheen from scrolling up and down on a sub-form in access. I want users to use the up and down arrows, and scroll bar, rather than the mouse wheel. This is because when they use the mouse wheel, the scrolling response is very slow and jumpy.

I have tried to use the code on this page http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278379 
It works, but only prevents scrolling through records, not scrolling up and down a form.

Thanks everyone.

By the way, the code i used is on the bottom section of the page.

Thanks thiyaguk, however, I did state in my question that I want to stop a sub-form from scrolling with the mouse wheel. That link is only for record scrolling.
