test if the shift key is currently being pressed.

I am using Microsoft Access 2013 in 64 bit mode.

I have  code that is triggered by a click event. I would like that code to know if the shift key is currently being pressed. I have seen code for 32 bit  systems.  

The 64 bit version seems more elusive.

It's the same for 32 or 64 bit.  To test for the Shift key, use the OnMouseUp or OnKeyUp event.  Shift is one of the parameters for this event and will return a 1 or True if the shift key is pressed.
