I believe that the check mark is ascii code number 252.  I want to be able to insert a check mark into a field in a table that I have created in word.  

How do I do this?

Hi jjjjjjj,
Change the font to WindDing, then hold the ALT key down and enter 0252 on the numeric keypad.

Cheers!

If you have the Wingding 2 font, then type the letter p.  Otherwise, click on Insert, Symbol, change the subset to Arrows, and you'll find a checkmark.
