    Assign Excel Macros to Alt-Key Shortcuts?

    I'm working with a number of macros in Excel. When assigning shortcut keys, Excel seems to default to Ctrl-key combinations.

    In an effort to retain shortcuts keys I can remember, I'm being severely hampered by the fact that so many Ctrl-key combinations are already spoken for: Ctrl-P, Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C, etc.

    I can use those keys, of course, but then I lose the "normal" function of them. I would desperately like tlo assign Alt-key combinations to my macros. Or even Alt-Ctrl-key or Ctrl-Shift-key combinations.

    Does anyone know how to do that?

    You can assign Ctrl+Shift shortcuts through the usual shortcut dialog.

    Thanks, Rory! This is perfect. And I don't have to code any VB!
