Can Access 2000 intercept the mouse scroll wheel?

I've started using flexgrid in my access application because it gives my users the formatting control they want. Now I'm stuck trying to get it to scroll with the mouse wheel.

I've seen countless examples on the net for VB6 and have tried all of them to no avail. VBA/Access seems to be just different enough that none of the code examples apply.

Has anyone ever got this to work? All I would need is something that could hook the wheel and fire an event when it moves up or down.

Well ... this is the de-facto standard for turning the mouse wheel *off* ... possible it could be tweaked for your needs - since it does 'hook' into the wheel:

Yeah,
I'm not so sure about Access 2000 though.
I do know that Access versions 2003 and newer do have a "MouseWheel" event you can grab.

What was left out of that event's implementation was ... a Cancel argument!  Too bad. Although, guess we are wanting to do the opposite here.

Thanks for the feedback, just wanted to make sure there wasn't an easy way to do it before I gave up on it. Maybe I'll dig into it a little more in a future project.
