Excel 2.20: E, I, N, U, and Uppercase Letters as Macro Keys


Page 353 of the "Microsoft Excel Reference" version 2.2 manual incorrectly states the following:

   The [macro] shortcut key can be any uppercase or lowercase letter
   except e, i, n, or u. 

This is a documentation error. You can use any lowercase letter for a macro shortcut key in Microsoft Excel version 2.20. Uppercase letters can also be used; however, the SHIFT key must be pressed in addition to the COMMAND and OPTION keys.

While you can define e, i, n, or u as a shortcut key, it is not recommended if the file is to be transferred into Excel version 1.50. Excel versions 1.50 and earlier do not support the use of these keys as macro shortcut keys.
