Windows 'Alt' key codes

  geedad 22:19 11 Apr 2008

I am trying to input foreign and other key codes into my documents, but although I am holding down the 'ALT' key then inputting the appropriate key code ( I have a list of these ),then releasing it,nothing happens!
I have previously used this method with no problems, hence ?

You have to use the numeric keypad to do this.

Sorry, VoG™. I should have stated that I was using the numeric keypad. Isn't there always something we leave out!
BTW, you response must be the fastest on record, to date!

Make sure that NumLock is on. There is normally a light on the keyboard.

Actually I was once timed as responding before the question appeared - a glitch with PCA's clock I think.

Do you have insert in Menu in Word then insert Symbol

Thanks,VoG™, once more!
That did the trick, and I was really amused by your remark about the PCA's clock!
Greatly appreciated!

I have used this but it is so slow, but thank you for your response. Please see post to VoG™.
Many thanks!
