Fast keys into VBA

Hi All,

Any idea in how to create the manual action of hitting the keys "Control + SHIFT + P"   into vba code?

For example, a similar action for manually hitting the "enter" key transformed into vba code (from none other that Mr. Gowflow, one of my favorite Rock Stars on this forum) is:  Sendkeys "Enter"

I've tried a few combinations for "Control + SHIFT + P" but no luck so far....

Your ideas save beginners like me eons of time.   :)

thanks!

Can I ask why you need to use Sendkeys? Are you trying to automate some other application?

The fastest gets the most points I think...

Thanks again!
