View Full Version : Solved: Creating A Shortcut Key

07-18-2008, 04:42 PM
Hi All,

When we record a macro in excel it gives us an option to provide a shortcut ket to run that macro.

But That shortcut key is applicable only to that system & when you use that macro in some other system that shortcut key will not work.

Now my question is it possible to create a shortcut key for a particular macro through VBA coding in excel so that shortcut key is uniform for that macro.

I understand that if that shortcut key combination is already in a particular system could give us a conflict, its okay for those systems I can change the shortcut key to some other.

Any help regarding this will be great.

Hi Sudhir. See the Application.MacroOptions Method in VBA help. Let me know if you need any carification beyond that...

Application.OnKey "+^D","myMacro"

assigns the macro to Ctrl-Shift-D. To reset it use

Application.OnKey "+^D"
