Mouse Wheel not working within one specific excel workbook-worksheets

Occasional Visitor

Suddenly I was unable to scroll through my worksheets using the scroll wheel on my mouse within one specific workbook in excel. I have tried everything I know to find out why. The mouse wheel will work properly within other excel workbooks and worksheets, and within every other application as normal, but it WILL NOT work at all within this one workbook! This is extremely frustrating, as I use this particular workbook frequently for timesheets. It is a pain to have to use the scroll bar at the side and bottom of the sheets! Can anyone please tell me how to resolve this issue???

Sometimes it helps if you remove the fixation and reinsert it.

Located under the tab: View > Window > Freeze Window.
There may also be VBA code in the workbook preventing this.
To be able to say more precisely, one would have to be able to see the file.


Hope I could help you with these information.
