I already said a macro can be assigned to the keyboard.  Telling me that I can do a macro and sending me to macro website doesn't answer the question.  I know a macro will work.  I need the code.

You might as well tell me this and say it is the solution to my question

in esence, you use a macro recorder, that records everything you do : mouse movements, clicks, keyboard inputs..
code is only needed when that does not cover your needs, see here :  http://www.homeandlearn.co.uk/mw/s10p1.html
