Here's part of the solution presented on this link: http://www.mvps.org/dmcritchie/excel/mouse.txt

MS Excel for Windows -- Mouse Settings
    Windows START, Settings, Control Panel --> Mouse
      Left Button:       Left-click (global/default)
      Right Button:      Right-click (global/default)
      Wheel Button:      Enter (global *override*)
      Large Thumb Button:  Back    (global/default)
      Small Thumb Button:  Forward (global/default)

 Excel: Tools->Options->General->"zoom on roll with intellimouse
    keep this off or you won't be able to use mouse for
    a vertical scrolling,  you can still use Ctrl+wheel to zoom in/out.
 VBE problems with scrolling:  make sure you do not have
    exceptions in Control Panel, Mouse, General, Advanced
    or for some older drivers there is a tab near the end  
    or from Wheel tab,  Wheel trouble shooter,  Advanced button
       remove any added override that does not respond to scrolling
    or for some make sure Use MS Office Compatible scroll is checked (even if available may not be needed)  
    If still not working see this thread

 Latest Microsoft Mouse Drivers:
    Microsoft Mouse | Download -- IntelliPoint Mouse Software
   works with Logitech mice as well but will disable itouch keyboard features

   Windows Control Settings:
      Control Panel,  Mouse,   Middle Wheel Button,   Enter
 For non Microsoft mice, if MS drivers don't work either, and the MS drivers
    don't work either see  freewheel
