Hello all,

I can't seem to find any pointers on this subject through Google.

The idea is that I position the mouse cursor (hover over) a slicer. When the slicer has items that are not shown, I would like to scroll to the end of the slicer list, to be able to select these items.
Now, the scrolling happens in the sheet, not in the slicer object.

So I want to have the slicer and sheet in place, but the scrolling of the mouse wheel should take place inside the list of slicers (area A) instead of area B below the slicer (I am not really a fan of clicking in the grey scrollbar area though).

Do we need some sort of an event to capture the fact that we are on top of a slicer ? I use Excel 32 bits.

Many thanks in advance !

To be clear, when I scroll the mouse wheel we get something like this and the slicer goes of out sight:

The only way I know is to first click on the slicer (on the title bar to avoid changing the slicer's selection), after that, the scroll wheel scrolls the slicer

Thank you Jan Karel, I investigated this and your solution works ! More advanced solutions to get it all working without clicking scrollbar or title bar, are not worth the effort.
