Mouse Wheel event

In a subform on a main form I am trying to prevent the mouse wheel allowing the user to move to other records. I have tried this but it does not work.

Private Sub Form_MouseWheel(ByVal Page As Boolean, ByVal Count As Long)
If Page = True Then
        DoCmd.GoToRecord , AcRecord = acPrevious
End If
End Sub

I am trying to disable the mouse wheel
Any ideas? Access version 2002
