Is it possible to INSERT a string into email body via Shortcut.

In my Access program I can insert predefined string content into Text Boxes

using various shortcust like Alt+1, Alt+2 etc. (I monitor for that in the

Form_KeyDown event).

I would love to be able to do similar inserts into email body. (yes each

user could set up their own strings in Signatures but I would rather have the

many commonly used ones stored in the Access DB)

I have not programmed Outlook other than to use Automation in Access to fill

out an email's To, Subject, Body etc and send it off. (I use Redemption).

Regards

The only way in Outlook to define shortcuts is to customize the toolbar, add

your own button, and find an accelerator for it that isn't used yet. In

order to define the accelerator, use the ampersand in the button's caption.

Chances are good that &1, &2, etc. are available.

Best regards

Re: Is it possible to INSERT a string into email body via Shortcut

Yes I understand.

BUT

I meant to do Signature type inserts programmatically from Access.

eg user opens new mail item, clicks on my Access app, presses Alt+1 and then

via Automation the insert occurs. I was hoping for some code in Access to

manipulate the insertion into the email body.
