  • Call a DLL File from Code Manually
    1. Download the free MouseWheelHookA2k Sample Database and Code from the Lebans Holdings website. Extract the file into a folder on the computer.

    2. Copy and paste the "MouseHook.DLL" file into the folder with the Access MDB file.

    3. Open the Access database. Find and open the "StartUp" form in the list of forms for your database (Your start form may have a different name).

    4. Click the "Form Design Tools" toolbar and create a "Command Button" anywhere on your form.

    5. Right-click the Command Button and click the "Properties" option on the pop-up menu. Scroll down to the "OnClick" option and double-click the empty field to open the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) editor.

    6. Copy and paste the following code into the VBA editor:

      ' Turn the MouseWheel Off

      Dim blRet As Boolean

      blRet = MouseWheelOFF

    7. Close the VBA editor.

    8. Create another "Command Button" on any other form in your database to turn the scroll wheel back on before you exit the database. Enter the following code behind the Command Button in the "OnClick" code:

      ' Turn the MouseWheel On

      Dim blRet As Boolean

      blRet = MouseWheelON

    Import a Module into the Access Database
    1. Download the free basMouseHook Sample database and code from the site. Save the database in a folder on your computer.

    2. Open your database in Access. Click the "File/Import" option and then select "Modules." Browse to the folder where you saved the basMouseHook database and import the basMouseHook code module from the sample database.

    3. Open your "StartUp" form in the forms designer window. Right-click on the form, then click the "Properties" option on the pop-up menu.

    4. Scroll down to the "OnOpen" event procedure and double-click it to enter the VBA editor.

    5. Copy and paste the following code in the "OnOpen" event procedure:

      Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)

      Static MouseHook As Object

      Set MouseHook = NewMouseHook(Me)

      End Sub
