define keys to run Addin code


Z

I am trying to set 2 keys on the keyboard to run code from MyAddin, on the
server. I've tried the following unsuccessfully. (See the commented-out
code for what I also tried.) How can I reference an Addin when defining a
key?

Sub setKeys()
Dim myAddin As AddIn
Set myAddin = "g:\myAddin.dot" '"myAddin.dot"
CustomizationContext=NormalTemplate
KeyBindings.add KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(wdKeyF12), KeyCategory:= _
wdKeyCategoryMacro, Command:="time" 'myAddin.time"
CustomizationContext = NormalTemplate
KeyBindings.add KeyCode:=BuildKeyCode(wdKeyInsert), KeyCategory:= _
wdKeyCategoryMacro, Command:="Send"
End Sub

TIA

set a reference to the add-in with VBE > Tools References first...

If my answers r 2 terse, ask again or hassle an MVP,
at least they get recognition for it then.

Thanks, wHeretic. I tried setting a reference to it (using Browse), but
only library files are shown. I guess my question now is: Am I supposed to
be saving my Addin (now a .dot file) as a .olb (or some libary extension)?
If so, how to do that?

is this still outstanding? Sorry for the delay - silly season, moved
house & ISPs etc.
