Crystal Reports - code keystrokes into a barcode

Last Modified: 2015-06-17
I'm building a barcoded Sales Order form (Dynamics GP Packing Slip) using Crystal Reports. It will be used as a proof of delivery and will be returned to us and used to complete the transaction through invoicing. Much of the data is already barcoded allowing the order processors to quickly scan and open transactions and move through many of the data entry steps in GP. I've recorded macros to expedite the process for the employees processing the paperwork but to further simplify, i'd like to include my macro button combinations in another barcode.

How can i tell crystal reports to consider a combination of keys like "CTRL" + "F2" as having been depressed?
