There is no key mapped for the \ key in the danish layout.
However the / key  on many European keyboard layouts, such as Danish, Finnish, German and Italian, this key will appear as SHIFT+7 in the shift state.

On other keybords there is a key, Alt Gr, and with this i can get \ with Danish layout

I have all redy tryed that, but i cant assign the \, not even with the English layout. Have tryed to type in alt+92, but nothing helps, it will not accept \.

The only reference I've seen is the ALT-GR +  macro key on the Danish keyboard.

My guess is there is nothing to do about it.
