Hotkey

Hello,

I have suddenly the following behaviour:
When I type Alt+T a macro is excecuted (is not intended)
When I type first Alt and let loose the Alt key and press T, then the Tool Menu opens up (which is the desired action)

The other combinations Alt+otherkey work well no matter whether I press both keys at same time or in sequence.

I have nothing set up  to call a macro with hotkeys.

I tried already rebooting the computer and it still persists.
I started the database while pressing Shift key, but still have this macro calling.

I have no idea how this came up and I would like to get rid of this calling a macro with Alt+T.

Any suggestions?

Thanks and regards,
Vito

Do you have a Macro named AutoKeys ?

Is this when a Form is open?

Are there any hot keys on the form, ie a command button that has a letter underlined in it's Caption?

Answer to DatabaseMX:
It happens when a form is open.
I have never set up  Autohotkey.
There is a button on the form which executes a macro and button has a T as caption, but T is not underlined and the macro is not the one that is called by Alt+T.

Just to clarify ... I am asking if there is a Macro with the specific name of AutoKeys  ?

Can you upload the db ?

There is and was never a macro called AutoKeys.

But I found solution. It was connected to your comment about underlined T.
There is a button wich I had previously named RQFC&T. Apparently this "&" is treated by MS Access as an underline. This button activated that macro that was called by Alt+T.

I renamed button to RQFCT and now all is fine again.

Thanks very much.

Actually, the ampersand causes the next letter to become underlined ... and thus a Hot Key.

Good catch !!!!
