What I have found to be the case as well....when the focus is in a form header field I can scroll without the beeping. The minute I click into a field in the Detail section the beep returns - it is an intermittent beep in the detail section as eventually, while scrolling with the mouse wheel, after a few beeps, the beeping goes away. I have yet to find the trigger for it but thought the header info might help. I will continue to look through this forum for an answer.I'm late to the game but I created an account specifically to comment on this issue. I am using Office 365 Apps for enterprise, Access version 2106 (Build 14131.20278 Click-to-Run) on Windows 10.
I am experiencing this issue as well on both continuous forms and both linked and local tables and I am determined to figure out as much as possible and I could use your help.
This issue occurs with tables containing only one record and linked vs local tables does not matter. It also occurs when your cursor is in the "New record" row.
I have not been able to duplicate it when selecting the entire row by clicking on the left hand side of the row. It seems to require the cursor to be clicked in a field. It occurs when the row is in the "edited" and "non-edited" state and when a field is null or contains data.
Sometimes it stops occurring while I am testing things out and usually double clicking in a field will start it back up.
I can even get it to occur in a local table with one field (data type doesn't matter) with no data and no primary keys or indexes.
