When to Use SendKeys

Use the SendKeys function to exploit the delete functionality of many grid and spreadsheet controls that have a delete functionality. Use this functionality without writing code to delete each row if your form has an option that deletes all highlighted rows. This method works much faster than writing code to check for each highlighted row in the grid, and then deleting that row.

Remember not to use SendKeys to send a key value without first setting the focus of the control to which you are sending the key value.

Call this procedure to simplify the process:

 
'Pass the Key value to send and the 
'Control to which the value to be sent

Sub SendKeyTo(KeyValue As String, cCnt _ 
        As Control)
         
         cCnt.SetFocus
         SendKeys KeyValue
         
End Sub
