Trying to develop a macro in Word7 with VBA to capture all keystrokes, handle the ones I care about and pass the rest to Word.

Think I need to use an API call to do this but do not know which one or calling/return conventions.

Well I could try. Your macro could load the form on which OCX will be suited in advence. This OCX will subclass the Word window so that you handle keystrokes you care about and pass the rest to Word.

Will try this. Was hoping for an answer using VBA instead although.
