Hi, Dixie.
The Ctrl key is represented by a ^ in the autokeys macro. What is the Alt
key symbol?
There isn't a symbol for the <ALT> key, because it isn't a valid key in the
AutoKeys macro. <CTRL> and <SHIFT> are valid keys, though. The <ALT> key
is reserved for hot keys (aka "access keys").

HTH.

OK, so I have tried to use <SHIFT> and received an error saying that <SHIFT>
was not a valid key in an autokeys macro. How do you make an Autokeys
macros that runs code say for <SHIFT>{F10}?

Hi Dixie,

I checked 'autokeys' in Access Help and this info is there:
+{F1} is SHIFT+F1

Thankyou Linda, that is what I needed. I tried to search Help, but I am
obviously not very good finding the correct key words to search for.
