VB macro Addin

I created a macro with a shortcut and now need to distribute that macro to a group of people to use.  I saved the macro in a new spreadsheet as an xlsm file and then sent it to a test subject and had him save it as an XLAM file, addin.  If you run the macro from the developers tab it runs just fine, but if I try to use the shortcut key stroke, cntrl-z which was set up when I wrote the macro, it doesn't work.  Does saving the file as an addin break the macro shortcut key functionality?

Probably, but in any case Ctrl+Z is "Undo" so you probably want to choose a different shortcut.

I did check and an add-in with a macro assigned ti Ctrl+Z did not work but one assigned to Ctrl+Alt+A did. In any case you're welcome and I'm glad I was able to help.
