Mouse scroll on Continuous Form looses first record


I

Iram

Hello.
I am using Access 2003. I have a continous form and when I scroll using the
mouse wheel the first record becomes. To unhide it I have to click on the
First Record button in the Form Record Selector.
How can I prevent the wheel scroll from doing this? I am even trying to
create a button that will go to the "First Record" however it doesn't work
unless my cursor is in one of the fields in the continous form. In other
words if I open the form and scroll with the wheel then click on the button
that suppose to take me to the first record I get an error "Can't go to the
specified record". Like I said it won't work until my cursor is in one of the
fields then I can click this button with success.

Can you please help with a solution?

Thanks.

I meant "when I scroll using the mouse wheel, the first record becomes
hidden"...

Has anyone seen this problem before?

Thanks.

Check the Form Property (in design view) on the Other Tab named "Cycle"
Change it to "Current Record"

It basically tells the form where to go when it's reached the last control. Whether
to cycle back to the first control on the current record, or go to the next record,
even if that is a New Record.

Thanks Danny for your reply.
I changed it to "Current Record" and it does the same thing. Let me give you
some additional information.
This form that I am having scrolling trouble with is open by clicking a
button on a seperate form. I used the button wizard to create that button. I
told the wizard to open the problem form based upon the case number being the
same in both the parent form and this problem form. Could the filtering be
causing a problem with the scrolling or do you know of anything else that
could be causing the problem?

I'm sorry, I didn't notice your reference to "continuous forms".

That being the case, I'd say I don't fully understand your dilemma.

Are you saying that, while scrolling *down* the continuous forms, the
first row becomes hidden, up above somewhere and you have to
scroll back to see it?

It seems unlikely that this is confusing you, but from what you wrote,
it almost seems like a simple game of hide-and-seek. Can you
expand on your problem. Maybe that will help.

Hi, I am having the exact same problem. Which is what brought me here. :)

I am attaching screenshots to help.

A few things: it seems to happen only when opening the form in a pop-up window. And only if the window is not big enough to fit all the records.

Behavior:

When I open the form, all records are displayed.

When I scroll down with the mouse wheel, the top one disappears.
At this point I can no longer scroll with the mouse wheel to return to that first record. But I can use the record navigation to get back to it. The scroll pane on the side does not show any empty space to indicate that there is another records.

If I resize the window or if I refresh the record, then the "missing" record shows up again. If I scroll down again and if the window is not big enough, it disappears again.
