VBA code to assign shortcut key in Word 2007

Hello, any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have a basic macro (See below)
I can manually assign a shortcut key to the macro using the mouse.
Is it possible to assign the shortcut key with VBA code for Word 2007?

Macro is auto-loaded from Add-in.

Sub COEShowText()
'
' COEShowText Macro
' COE Show Trainer Text
'
    Selection.Find.ClearFormatting
    Selection.Find.Font.Color = -603914241
    Selection.Find.Replacement.ClearFormatting
    Selection.Find.Replacement.Font.Color = 15073280
    With Selection.Find
        .Text = ""
        .Replacement.Text = ""
        .Forward = True
        .Wrap = wdFindContinue
        .Format = True
        .MatchCase = False
        .MatchWholeWord = False
        .MatchWildcards = False
        .MatchSoundsLike = False
        .MatchAllWordForms = False
    End With
    Selection.Find.Execute Replace:=wdReplaceAll
End Sub

Think you want Application.OnKey.

Application.OnKey "^b", "ToWord"

sets to Ctrl-b.  (^ = ctrl; % = alt; + = shift)

No problem.  Please reread the link.

Application.OnKey is VBA code.  The article is for a macro, but Application.OnKey can take a subroutine name just as easily.

You can also, if you like, use the KeyPress event of the form.  The callback will give you a key code and a shift state; start off with an If for the key combination you want and have it call your function.

But attaching that to the form can run into problems when the form doesn't have focus.  I would opt for the first way.

Thanks for your help.

I end up basing the macro on the below VBA code.

Sub KBShrtcutAssign()
'
' KBShrtcutAssign Macro
'
'
    CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate
    KeyBindings.Add KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(wdKeyH, wdKeyAlt), KeyCategory:= _
        wdKeyCategoryCommand, Command:="COEHideText"
    CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate
    KeyBindings.Add KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(wdKeyS, wdKeyAlt), KeyCategory:= _
        wdKeyCategoryCommand, Command:="COEShowText"
End Sub
