Access 2007 - create macros to toggle between design view, form view, and layout view

In a previous version of Access, I was able to create a macro called AutoKeys which allowed me to assign key strokes to commands.  Some of them are now obsolete.  

Example:  {F7} signifies the F7 function key.  Assigned to this key was the action RunCommand and the command was DesignView.  DesignView appears to no longer be valid,  How could I do this type of thing in Access 2007?  Thanks!

There are keyboard shortcuts to do this as well:

For example:
Ctrl+,
(Hold down the Control key and tap the comma key)
...will bring you to design view from Form view.

Note that this keystroke, and it's companion keystroke  Ctrl+.
...actually toggle you forward and backward through all the views of a form/Report.

This is what I have used since Access 2003, ...thus avoiding the extra Code or Macros.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Capricorn1 - this isn't with macros though, right?  acCmdDesignView is not available in macros as an action argument.

did you click on Show all actions from the ribbon?

Capricorn1 ... No, I hadn't done that.  Now I did and the command is there.  However, I'm getting a caution sign with an exclamation point through it next to the macro.  When I run it, it seems fine.  Not sure what the caution sign is for, but it appears to be working.  This is exactly what I wanted to do. Thank you!
