I have been writing up reports for excel and can't find out the name of the key below escape?
does anyone know its name or where i might find its name?

thanks matt

Why do you want a name for it?

I presume you are talking about the key with `¬¦ on it?

He's writing a report. He obviously needs to refer to it in writing. It has a name, all keys do. ~ for instance is called tilde. He needs the correct one for that key.

The ` is called a Grave (pronounced grarv) accent in French the opposite (which is not on my KB) is called Acute. I only have ` and the standard apostrophe '.

The ¬ is refered to as a 'Logical Not Sign'. I have no Idea what taht means, but it sounds a mathematics term to me.

the ¦ is called Broken Bar

¬ is called "not" and is the Logical not sign

¦ is called brvbar and is the Broken bar

Yes I understood that bit, just can't quite work out why having never used the key!

The ISO 8859-1 character set doesn't name the ` but does describe it as a grave. click here

Sorry, didn't mean to be rude, I'm feeling Feisty today :)

I use it all the time

It's in the same place as the ~ is on US Keybards (go figure) and is used a lot in PC Gaming. Being UK based, I have to use the ¬ even though I have my KB set as UK!
