Hi there. I was wondering if theres a possibility of creating a macro to bring up an on screen keyboard or a way to create your own. A macro for each letter will not suffice as it over writes whatever is in the active cell as the cursor deactivates itself at the end of a macro.

Thank you for any help.

Hey Colin.

I won't take offence for that reply as I prob worded mine badly ;) I aint a newbie when it comes to computers hehe.

I know that application is an on screen keyboard, but if someone's using a full screen operating system made within Excel, they can't access that (or they're not meant to!). What I need is some sort of Microsoft Excel based on screen keyboard designed with the use of macro's or VB script.

Thanks
