Keyboard Remapping - Back Tab

Does anyone know how to remap one of the Windows Keyboard Keys to Back-Tab?

I have tried both the KeyTweak and SharpKeys but cannot find a solution.

The normal way is Shift-Tab but this is for a data entry system and will slow down
the process

Thanks,
Steve

Got it to work.  Thanks
Glad it worked for you! As a matter of curiosity, what key did you map to back-Tab? I like the idea of that, as hitting Shift to get back-Tab is a nuisance, but I'm not sure what key I'd give up to get a non-shifted back-Tab. Maybe a function key on the left side of the keyboard close to the Tab key? What did you use? Thanks, Joe

Since this is a pure data-entry project I used Page UP to keep it close to the numeric key pad.
I may use the Numeric Key Pad / or * depending on what the Data Entry Person decides.

All the other keys on the Numeric Key Pad are required in the application.

All the numbers, the decimal point and minus is used for Dollar Amounts
Numeric Key Pad Enter is Tab and the Numeric Key Pad + is Enter (or new record)
Steve,
That's very interesting! Not what I would have guessed. It's good that you can customize it for each data entry person. Thanks for the feedback. Regards, Joe
