Hi folks,

with apologies if this is an inappropriate place to post this...

On the Recommended Add-ins and links page there is a link to a nice little programme called "FreeWheel";

http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/2060/freewheel.html

It's a small utility to make better use of the mouse scroll wheel. I have been using this for a good while, with Win98se. I am in the process of changing to use WinXP, (Installed OS, but haven't got all progs up and running yet), and it doesn't seem to work in XP.

My question is, does anyone know of a similar prog that will do the same thing in XP? Specifically it enables the scroll wheel to scroll HORIZONTAL scroll bars, just by having the cursor over the said bar.

I've had no joy googling... but I tend not to be sucessful at that anyway!!

Thanks in anticipation,

Regards,

Simsy

Links? Where??
If Excel says you have links but you can't find them, go to Formulas, Name Manager. Look for old links to dead workbooks & delete.

I don't think it does the horizontal scroll thing, but I've been using "VB Scroll" at home with Windows XP and Excel 2003--seems to work fine.

There's a link to it in the "Addins and Links" thread in the Questions forum :)

It's the horizontal thing I really miss!
