here's a function to set up hotkeys

all you need to do is

Public Function HotKeys(KeyCode As Integer, Shift As Integer, callerForm As String)

Dim intkey As Integer
intkey = KeyCode
KeyCode = 0 'assumption is first made that user-operation key was pressed, therefore keystroke is neutralized.
'If not a user-operational key, then original value will be restored below

Select Case intkey 'check to see if key pressed was an operational key

Case is = 17 'just add case stmts based on the key code values of your fkeys
                   ' you can trap almost any key or combination
end select

End If

Case Else 'key pressed was not an operational key, so reassign original value for data entry
    GoTo abort
End Select
exitsub:
Exit Function

abort:     'see Case Else above
KeyCode = intkey
End Function


then on your form

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

    HotKeys KeyCode, 0

End Sub
0
