MS Word 97 mathematical symbol query

  GRFT 10:49 04 Jul 2004

In MS Word97 where do you find the symbol for the index (or exponent), ie, that little number above and to the right of a number to indicate how many times it has to be multiplied by itself. I've searched through the symbol tables without success, but it must be there somewhere!

You need to add it from the customise toolbar option.
1. Right click on any toolbar
2. Select 'customise', and pick the 'command' tab
3. select 'fomat' on the left pane and scroll down until you see the 'superscript' option.
4. left click, hold and drag it on to one of your toolbars to dock it.
5. now click it to add your numbers


Happy Maths!!

Select text, Format/Font then click Superscript. So simple! As you can probably guess I don't use Word a lot. Thank you very much.

Happy with that,

I just assumed that it would be something worth putting on the toolbar if it was a frequent action... never mind GRFT has got their answer
