It's the same thing ... Executing puts the query in Datasheet view..

Alt --> Q --> Then R

you can create a customized toolbar like below,

haven't figured out how to assign a shortcut to the toolbar yet,

so it's one easy click instead of two

"Alt --> Q --> Then R" does not go to Design View from Datasheet View.


I am looking for a shortcut key because i do not want to go and grab the mouse and drag it to the icon and click left-click.
