Assigning Shortcuts to special characters in Excel?

I am trying the create a spread sheet in Spanish and I as such I want to use the Spanish characters.

I went into word and set my own special keyboard short cuts, but the don't work in Excel. I have tried to create my own shortcut keys in Excel but there doesn't appear to be the option for this, so is it possible?
