I want to use some UCS character codes in a Word 6 document using Windows 97. Could someone please explain how a character is found and put in a document using the code number for the symbol. Thanks a lot
I tried to post a response to this earlier and had written all this only to find the sattelite link had gone down and I'd been disconnected so here goes again.
If you need to find control code for a particular character try this Start>programs>acessories>system tools>character map.
In the pop-up window, select the font you are using from the drop down menu and click on the particular character you wish to use. In the bottom right hand corner of the character map window the control code for that character is displayed.
As VoG™ and pj123 said, you can only insert the character by using the numerical keypad with Num. Lock enabled.
More flexible if you frequently need to insert Unicode characters is a macro recorder.
I use Perfect Keyboard Pro, which I got free on a magazine cover disk. Only about $20 to register the latest version (Shareware). The latest version can record typing on the Numeric Keypad, thus one can define shortcut keys for any Unicode characters.

If the character is not available in Insert Symbol, go into Character Map (Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tolls, charater Map). Highlight the character you want, click on Select then on Copy and the character will be inserted at the position you left your cursor on the Word document.
