VBA Word: how to call a function via shortcut key

  • Re: VBA Word: how to call a function via shortcut key


    With difficulty - Application.OnKey is not available in Word and there is no equivalent.


    What you can do is run a macro that binds a keystroke to a procedure. Much the same thing as Application.OnKey, I suppose, just not as useful


    Try the following:


    Paste, in a new module, in the VBA editor for a document


    The keys are limited to those defined in the Word.WdKey enumeration (Press Shift-F2 with the cursor on wdKeyBackSlash to open the Object Browser and get a list of defined keys).


    You can use Alt, Ctrl (and probably Shift - I've never tried), but no combinations, like Alt-Shift + key, areallowed, AFAIK. I'd be happy to be corrected on that.
