In VB i have read that if the caption of a command button is set to "&OK" instead of "OK" it sets O as a hot key and Caption of that button would change into "OK" instead of "OK"...

But when i am doing it in VBA (excel) it isnt working...why?

Ctrl+: enters current time. Ctrl+; enters current date. Use Ctrl+: Ctrl+; Enter for current date & time.

How is it not working?

Try setting the Accelerator property.

I only think it's in Access, and perhaps other apps, that you can set the hotkey by just putting a & in the caption.
