    Create a Hotkey for the Copy Function ^C / ^V

    Hi All,

    I would like to create an Autokeys Hotkey for {F3}-Copy and {F4}-Paste that would Copy and Paste using F3 and F4 within access for rapid data transfer.

    For example:
    If the clipboard contains data from an external PDF, I want to F4 paste the clipboard contents into an access form.

    How could this be done?

    Many Thanks

    Why bother when there are existing keyboard shortcuts for both copy & paste?
    I use an Autokeys macro to add new functionality...not replicate what already exists.
