Need help! - Shortcut key to bring up workbook

Not open for further replies.

I have workbook that I would like to bring to the foreground and activate when I press an assigned shortcut key (even if the workbook isn't active - .i.e minimized or hidden behind other windows) My goal is for the user to be able to bring the Excel workbook up with the shortcut key even if the user is in another application like Chrome, Word, etc.

I have tried VB code and assigning a shortcut key within Windows, but nothing has worked for all the cases mentioned above.

Does anyone have an idea to make this work?

Thanks in advance...
