Craig,

Just in case:

'In A Module
Public Declare Function GetKeyState Lib "user32.dll" (ByVal nVirtKey As Long) As Integer


' Determine whether the Shift key is currently being pressed.

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim keystate As Integer
   
    keystate = GetKeyState(vbKeyShift)
    ' Check the &H8000 bit of the return value.
    If keystate And &H8000 Then
        Debug.Print "The Shift key is currently down."
    Else
        Debug.Print "The Shift key is currently up."
    End If
End Sub


Highlight "vbKeyShift" and press F1 and you should see all the other constants for the Keyboard Keys.  

Cheers,

Ed.
