I have a Compucessory Wireless Mouse (Model: 40914)and I am running Windows 7. I can scroll in browsers and all the programs in Office 2007 except Word. It even scrolls in Windows Explorer. My machine is a Dell Vostro 200. I have downloaded the driver from Compucessory and installed, but this is still happening. Any thoughts?
Thanks!

Hi There,

That blog regarding wireless mice was very interesting in that other people were having the same problem. However, the fix that seemed to work, was a little confusing for me. It mentions going to your Wheel tab in Mouse properties and adding an exception. There is even a screen shot of the dialog box. It says to add an exception, but I do not see anywhere in that dialog box to do so.



ONLY in Word 2007, mouse does not work in the body of the letter! Menus, Excel, other applications are ok. This is on a new Vista laptop. USB mouse, or built-in mouse - same problem. I cannot highlight words, or right-click to spellcheck, etc.

Word 2003 on same laptop is ok. It was reinstalled after 2007 failed.

No add-ins added in, this is a new, fresh install. I'll check to see if the [ctrl] key suggestion works, but I won't have the laptop much longer so I may not get to test it. My boss (yeah of course it's his laptop) said he will just have to remove then reinstall Office 2007...

you can do these simple steps

1. Go to CONTROL PANEL -> MOUSE PROPERTIES
2. Then go to the WHEEL TAB - EXCEPTION
3. Then ADD the programs that scroll wheel don't work
in my case= MICROSOFT EXCEL 2007
4. Click APPLY then OK,
