Using Alt Codes in Excel

I am trying use the send keys function to send alt codes to values that are selected within an excel worksheet. Is this possible? So far I haven't had any luck using a variety of combinations.

Hello @Jmullins513 

 

Using Sendkeys, you can send the combination of keystrokes.

 

In your case, to use Alt key -> Select the Insert Modifier and enter the keys as shown below:

The syntax can be {Alt}({H}{I}) or {Alt}(HI)
