Oh! That’s the whole reason for this thread in the first place…I hit that combination because it was supposed to be connected to a macro that I wanted to run. It wasn’t, so the Workbook Statistics dialog dialogue came up.
Back in the days of Lotus 123, macros were only able to be executed via ctrl+[letter]. Ctrl+shift+[letter] wasn’t an option. (I can’t recall if there were menu commands that could execute a macro. Perhaps, there was no other way…regardless…) I had dopey boss that would overwrite ctrl+c and ctrl+v as short cuts to his goofy macros. I’d go to copy or paste something and it would execute some outrageous, poorly written, piece of shit code that would destroy whatever it was that I was working on.
It was at this time that I also was programming in SAS on the mainframe (TSO). Its shortcut for copy paste is/was ctrl+insert & shift+insert (shift+delete is cut). It turns out that this is nearly universal for windows, so I use that a lot…A LOT, I tell you.
(p.s., that dopey boss still uses ctrl+[letter] short cuts in his goofy excel vba macros )
