FM - Mouse Scroll

I have a user who claims that after she performs a certain operation in a Filemaker "form," it can sometimes "jump" to another record.  After checking the script, etc., etc., my boss finally suggested that it is happening because of the mouse scroll.  Is there any way to disable this in Filemaker alone?  It seems the only solution is to disable it for all uses in Windows.  (It is a hassle because the mouse scroll works well in going up and down a list or a table.  The user thinks they are scrolling the window, but I think the way it works in FM is that it moves down each record, so when it is in a form layout, it simply does the same --  moves to another record.  Really causes us problems.

I think you are correct and I do not know a way of disabling it. An option which might or might not work given the user's needs in the database is to set the navigation so that she is only looking at a Found Set of 1 record. You could do this by using the OnLayoutEnter script trigger and a short script:

Show All Records
Omit Record
Show Omitted

Thanks, Will, I will try the found set of 1 record, but I find it very limiting.  FM should provide a way of disabling or modifying scrolling.
