    Is there a short cut key stroke to use the format painter?

    I'm not sure about the shortcut key, but I know a really useful trick. If you double click the format painter icon on the toolbar, it toggles the painter "on." Meaning, you can continually do it over and over again (with the same format). To toggle it back off, (single) click the icon again.

    Format Painter: This button applies formatting changes from one area of the document to another area in one single operation. Click your pointer into one of the cells of the document that has the changes you want to apply elsewhere. Click the Format Painter Button (paintbrush icon) from the Standard Toolbar. Then highlight the cells that need to be changed. Your mouse pointer will carry an image of the insertion point and a paintbrush to alert you that you are "painting" the changes to the new location.

    Thanks for the responses. I am very familair with Format Painter which is why I would like to know the Key Stroke to activate if it exist.

    You can however assign a macro to a function key so it runs this macro

    Application.CommandBars.FindControl(ID:=108).Execute
