sendkeys with ALT does not work
Posted on 2011-02-13
I have a macro which contains sendkeys command with argument: %ea
It has worked for long time. Suddenly it does not work properly. It sends the e and a into the control were pointer is.
The same macro in the same database running on another computer with exactly same operating system (XP Professional), MS Office 2003, etc. still works.
Therefore some settings must have changed in the first computer. But what?
P.S. CONTROL with "^" works properly.
I have similar problem with other macros/commands, however, problem occurs occasionally. Again I have the two computers, with same operating system, same MS Access, same database, and some commands and macros work perfectly onl one computer and cause occasional crashes of the database (...MS Access encountered and error ... databse will be closed ...) on other computer, but not always.
Is there a general notion what such differences may be caused. I have no clue where to start looking.
