Is there an easy way to disable the mousewheel, or change its functionality, within Access 2002 forms? I hate the way it scrolls through records, since most people are naturally inclined to use the wheel to scroll further down a document of form as they would in Word or Excel and are surprised that it behaves differently in Access. I have tried Mousehook.dll and it works, but I have to distribute an Access database to multiple users on multiple systems, and I don't want to distribute a dll and extra instructions with it--it needs to be as user-friendly and compact as possible. Is there any VBA code that will either disable its functionality or change it to a scroll-through procedure on a form?

I was searching recently and found the following link which may address your problem.
I confirmed that it doesn't work for Acc97 which I have at home, however reading between the lines it should work with later versions without having to distribute an additional dll.
