test keycode for alphanumeric character


i have a keydown event and only want to run if an alphanumeric character is pressed. i think this is a UDF requirement.

how would yall design it? if yall could share even some air code that would be great!!

i'm so so sorry i'm so super overloaded now!!

i'm thinking something like convert the keycode to alpha and then test it for >=A <=z and also for numbers. can't think of the exact implementation but something along those lines! thanks guys!! = ))

Here's an example I have used before -- you will need to modify the selection statement to fit your needs.

Private Sub cbxControl_ID_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    Debug.Print KeyAscii
    If KeyAscii = 27 Then 'esc key
        Me.cbxControl_ID.Width = 1440
    End If
End Sub
