On a keyboard, can I map a key combination (Ctrl+C) to a single key?

I've googled the possibility of mapping key combinations (in this case Ctrl+C & Ctrl+V) to a single key (Ctrl+C to PageUp and Ctrl+V to PageDown would be ideal) and have found conflicting answers about the feasibility of this, as well as conflicting methods of making it so. I downloaded AutoHotKey
, which didn't seem to work (though I could have screwed up the script).
This is for the computer I have at work which uses Windows XP. I do a lot of copying and pasting between various programs (SAP's Quick Cut and Paste
makes me insanely happy) and databases and, though I've tried, I've never been able to train my left hand to take any role in the copy and paste process. Inevitably, I end up reaching over with my right, which really hurts after a while.
Any ideas? Thanks!
