Shortcut key

Is it possible to create a shortcut key for activating a VB program? Ie. You are working in MS Word and want to jump quickly to a VB program. The VB program will be running so the key just needs to activate the prog.

Looking forward to get some answers.

No that's not what I ment. I was thinking of more like ALT + <letter> or CTRL + <letter>. Any suggestions?

You can create a shortcut key which will launch a new instance of Visual basic by creating a shortcut on the desktop.  In its properties you can specify the key combination to launch.  

If the program is already running and you just use the taskbar.  Just move the mouse down and click on the application.  The above key combination does not work in this case as it will just launch another instance of VB.
