Hello,

is there a way to assign shortcuts for VBA procedures in Modules of MS
Access; if yes, how?

Do you mean "keyboard shortcuts", such as "Fn" plus a Function Key like
"F6"?

Keyboard actions trigger events which fire an event, events can execute
Macros or VBA functions in the Form's (Object) Module-- if you want to
execute VBA procedures that are located in a General Module from either of
these type event, you can do so via a macro or VBA code. Events associated
with keyboard actions include: On Key Down, On Key Up, and On Key Press.

Yes (whereas [Fn] usually is a key on notebooks only AFAIK)
Keyboard actions trigger events which fire an event, events can execute
Macros or VBA functions in the Form's (Object) Module-- if you want to
execute VBA procedures that are located in a General Module from either of
these type event, you can do so via a macro or VBA code.

Can you give an example how to assign a keyboard shortcut to an Access
macro, e. g. [Ctrl] + T for a procudure 'Sub Test'?

To my mind, reassigning keycode actions tends to be a bit "quirky", so I
avoid it. What are you trying to accomplish with the code you'd execute, and
what are the circumstances in which you'd want to do it -- perhaps someone
can offer a useful alternative, or perhaps someone else uses reassigned
keycode actions and can give you an example.

Oh, yes... I apologize that, given how little I use macros, I simply
overlooked that I should have mentioned the AutoKeys macro. For details, see
http://www.dataschenk.com/newsletters/Tips/Access-Autokeys.htm. It may be
just what you need.
