          Scroll wheel support (Windows)
          You can use a pointing device (mouse) equipped with a scroll wheel with FileMaker Pro for Windows to browse through records, scroll up and down, scroll in a field or portal formatted with a vertical scroll bar, and change the magnification of the image on your screen (zoom in or out).
          To use the scroll wheel to move through records in Browse mode:
           •
          Make sure no fields or objects are selected, then rotate the scroll wheel.
          The behavior is different depending on the current view:
           
           
          When the current view is
          Rotating the scroll wheel does the following
          Form View
          Scrolls through records as if you were clicking the left and right pages of the book.
          List View or Table View
          Scrolls through the list of records, as if you were clicking on the up and down arrows in the vertical scroll bar.
          To use the scroll wheel in other modes:
           •
          Layout mode: rotate the scroll wheel to scroll up and down in the layout, as if you were clicking on the up and down arrows in the vertical scroll bar of the document window.
           •
          Preview mode: rotate the scroll wheel to scroll up and down in the preview, as if you were clicking on the up and down arrows in the vertical scroll bar of the document window.
           •
          Find mode: rotate the scroll wheel to scroll up and down in the find request, as if you were clicking on the up and down arrows in the vertical scroll bar of the document window.
          To use the scroll wheel to move up or down in a field formatted with a vertical scroll bar in Browse or Find mode:
           •
          Click in the field, then rotate the scroll wheel. See Adding scroll bars to fields for more information.
          To use the scroll wheel to move up or down in a portal formatted with a vertical scroll bar in Browse mode:
           •
          Click in the portal (but not in a field), then rotate the scroll wheel. See Creating portals to display related records for more information.
          To enlarge or reduce the image on your screen (zoom in or out) with the scroll wheel:
           •
          While holding down the Ctrl key, rotate the scroll wheel.
          Notes
           •
          Refer to Windows Help and the documentation that came with your pointing device for complete instructions on how to use it.
           •
          FileMaker Pro does not support autoscroll, panning, or DataZoom.

            That was helpful, but not what i needed. I need to scroll up and down with the scroll wheel in brouse mode. It does it in find and edit layout...

             

            Any ideas?

              And in what viewing mode? View as form or View as List? David has described the behavior for each. Sometimes, you can get what you want by selecting limiting the found set to a single record and specifying list view even though you would otherwise specify Form view.

              Bottom line: you do not have as much control over what the scroll wheel as you might like to have. If you can't come up with a combination of view and found set that works for you, you are stuck.
