    Excel 2013: I lost current date hotkey

    Help me!

    After updating Office 2013 VL I lost the hotkey to add current date on a ceiling. It was CTRL+SHIFT+;

    Yes, I meant the shortcut is "CTRL+;" (means also "CTRL+SHIFT+,".)

    BTW, the current date hotkey is lost with the updates of Office in two computer and in a third when I didn't do any update is still working.

    The "insert time" still working fine, instead ("CTRL+.").

    Help, I cannot live without it. Seriously.

    On which keyboard layout is shift+, the same as ; ? Certainly not ENG US or ENG UK - on those the < character is shift+,

    Could this be a clue? Have you checked that you have the correct keyboard language installed for your layout?

    Ctrl+; works on all my machines and various versions of Excel - Office2000/Win7, 2007/Win10 and 2010/win10.

    I don't understand!!!

    I have italian layout, on my computer without the updates the CTRL+; still works, while, in the updated Office 2013 computers (different OSs) it stopped working!!!

    I check my friend of mine with Win 10 and Office 2013 with "Windows Update>Other Microsoft software updates checked" and even in his computer the CTRL+; didn't work. He is italian too.

    I am in trouble because I use that hotkey many many many times in a day.
