KeyCode combination

I use the following code to run cmdGoToNext_Click when F10 is pressed:

-----------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
   
    If KeyCode = vbKeyF10 And cmdGoToNext.Visible = True Then
        cmdGoToNext_Click
    End If
   
End Sub
------------------------------------------------------

What should the code be to use Ctrl & Right Arrow together instead of F10?

Thanks.

more properly it is

If KeyCode = vbKeyRight And CBool(Shift And vbCtrlMask) Then
   
    MsgBox "YES"
   
End If

Both your solutions don't seem to work. When I use the first solution I get an error message, and the second just does an ordinary move right (to next field).

My code is:

-----------------------------------------------------
Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)
   
    If (KeyCode = vbKeyLeft And CBool(Shift And vbCtrlMask)) And (cmdGoToNext.Visible = True) Then
        cmdGoToNext_Click
   
    End If
   
End Sub


Private Sub cmdGoToNext_Click()

    Check_Allocations
   
    If StopCodeExecution = True Then
        StopCodeExecution = False
        Exit Sub
    Else
        DoCmd.GoToRecord acDataForm, "frmDonations", acNext
    End If

End Sub

sorry dude, I guess that the arrow key still carries out its function regardless.  I don't know how to stop that behaviour.

Feel free to delete the question and repost it if you want

Private Sub Form_KeyDown(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer)

  Dim intCtrlDown As Integer

  intCtrlDown = (Shift And acCtrlMask) > 0
  If KeyCode = vbKeyRight And intCtrlDown = True And cmdGoToNext.Visible = True Then
     call cmdGoToNext_Click
   End If

End Sub

deighton: Thanks for that.

Jim: It works! Thanks again. BTW, can use a boolean type for intCtrlDown?

<<BTW, can use a boolean type for intCtrlDown? >>

 Not sure.  I've never tried it that way.  True/false in Access is an integer type (-1/0).  I've generally stayed away from the boolean type and implicit logic checks because of past bugs.
