I forget the exact combination of details, but try changing views between form and list view and see if hiding the status area makes a difference.
None of that seems to make a difference. Any other ideas?
Using Windows XP and FMP 12, I did a quick test. (Was using a lap top earlier so couldn't try this then).
I opened a layout and tried the scroll wheel.
In both list and form view, I could scroll forward and back through the found set as long as the mouse pointer was not over the status area.
This may be too obvious, but you did have more than one record in your found set?
I think that's it... I had just one record in the found set. I found that if I just added a "Show All Records" to the script, I'm still on my desired found record, but can scroll through all the other records.
But... then I found that that works just fine until I bring the database up in kiosk mode, which is the way the database is used. It will no longer scroll. Why would that be?!?! Back in "normal" mode, it will scroll.
