How to poll the keyboard in Access 2003 vba without using events

I have a need to poll the keyboard for the Shift key been pressed in a subroutine.

However i do not wish to do this through the normal events eg keypress, keydown etc.

Is there any function i can call that will return the result of whats currently been pressed on the keyboard ?

Thanks guys.

Well....the only way to monitor is through key events...however there's many flavors

That is still using the keypress event, what im really after is how to read the keyboard in a function.
