Can you show me how to assign a keystroke to a button on a Form.

I have a Form with a command button that checks the data on the Form and then moves to the next record if check is OK.

I want to assign the key F5 (for instance) to carry out the command button's function, ie if the user presses F5 then the data should be checked and move to the next record.

Thanks.

Hi nagayya,

You could do something like

if your buttonclick code is something like

Private Sub Command0_DblClick(Cancel As Integer)
  MsgBox "hello!"
End Sub

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
  If KeyCode = vbKeyF5 Then ' call the buttonclick code
    Call Command0_DblClick
  End If
end sub
