...a better mousetrap

I didn't realise just how popular this little utility was. Over ten thousand downloads since I wrote it in 2002. It's been drifting out the door at about 130 downloads a month for seven years.

What is it?
Microsoft Access is a great front end development tool for JET, SQL Server or other database engines. Brilliant GUI and report building. But, it likes to change records when the mouse wheel is scrolled. This can be dangerous during data entry and although it can be controlled with various techniques in code, it is a repetitive and depressing process.

Mousetrap is a COM control you simply 'drop' onto to any Access form to curtail the record movement due to scrolling.
