"Scrolling" a page which has huge data

I wanted to know if we have any Scroll bar events in JavaScript. I am doing a web application which handles huge data. It is kind of large data oriented application. I do not want to display all the data same time. Can we have scroll bar events to display chunks of data into web page.
Any help is much appreciated

sorry for not respomding sooner. if i hadf known your question i would have. Just use frames, they automatically generate a scroolbar if data is too much. In case you dont know how to use frames i will find an example i did...hold on....

<title>Magic Shop</title>
<frameset rows="*,50" border="0" framespacing="0" frameborder="0">
<frameset cols="50%,50%" border="0" framespacing="0" frameborder="0">
<frame src="Gandalf.html" name="Gandalf">
<frame src="Welcome.html" name="Quiz">
<frame src="CopyrightNotice.html" name="Footer">
This page requires a frames-capable browser.

I hope you already understand using frames. I'm too lazy to look for a link right now
