Any help would be great.

Hi, Jason Kha.

If the format CTRL-SHIFT-F is acceptable, you could do the following:

Create a macro (Tools, Macro, Record New Macro). In the Record Macro dialog box, name your macro and in the Shortcut key field enter "F" while you hold down the SHIFT key.  Hit Ok, then stop recording the macro.  Edit the macro (Tools/Macro/Macros, select your macro, then click the Edit button).  Erase the contents of the macro and replace with Userform.show--enter the name of your form instead of "Userform".  From then on, whenever someone presses CTRL-SHIFT-F, your userform will appear. The options are limited with MS Office 2000 for Windows apps, but with MS Office for Mac, there is an option (in the Record Macro dialog) to "Assign macro to Keyboard" that offers a much greater selection of key combinations. Maybe later versions of Office for Windows do also...
