Which is the recommended way to disable the mouse Scrolling Wheel in Access 2003 forms?

Hi Experts,

I know there are multiple solutions for this issue,
just would like to know from you experts the pros & cons of each of them

Taking in consideration that we have 2000/3 MDB and some users have office 2010
so we may have to convert to 2010 it the near future..

Which option would suit best in this case?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I found no real reason to need this in 2010 and newer versions of Access.

@Jeff,
This requires reference to custom DLL, hope I can save that DLL in a shared folder on the network and it will be automatically detected upon deployment of app... it will be a big hassle to have to install it on each users box.

Thanks,
Ben

There may be a way to "Share" the DLL, ...but the last time I knew, ...it had to be on each users machine.
