Keyboard Key Code Values

This was an old article on my website, which I thought might be good to resurrect in case people might still find it useful.

The Form's Key events can be used to determine which key on the keyboard was pressed so that certain user actions can be intercepted. Access provides some built-in KeyCode Constants that can be used for this situation. However, I couldn't find a complete list of all the possible Key Code Values anywhere, so I decided to create this page.

Below is an image of a typical keyboard layout. Hovering your mouse over each key will display the corresponding Key Code Value.
