I am trying to record a macro for a Microsoft 4000 keyboard. I want the macro to type my email address. The software records the macro just fine EXCEPT it will not record the @ sign. I thought the first time I recorded the macro it worked fine for a few days. Then it started dropping the first letter of my email address and it also quit typing the @ symbol and just typed a "2". I tried deleting the macro and re-recording it. Nope. Then I tried removing the software and re-installing. Nope. So now I am even wondering if it ever worked correctly. Maybe I just imagined it.

What am I doing wrong? I type the macro per instructions and do the normal Shift + 2 to get the @ symbol. It just does not work. I figured out how to get it to not drop the first letter of my email. I add an extra shift at the beginning of the macro. But I cannot figure out how to get an "@" to record. Actually it will not record any of the uppercase numeral keys.

Suggestions? Thanks
