Sending a ctrl+(key) to a serial port

I am trying to operate a cash drawer from a PC.  In the directions included to test its functionality, it says to type the following in the command prompt:

MODE COM1 96,n,8,2
(RETURN)
TYPE CON>COM1
(RETURN)
^G                                  =ctrl+G
(RETURN)

This method works perfectly, but I cannot get this command to send in VB via the mscomm control.  Thanks.

Thanks, I guess I was overcomplicating it.  I appreciate such a lightening fast response!
