    ur technique is quite good but u know....i need to compute the mathematical equations which involve various types of symbols such as mu, summation and powers etc.

    even though with your technique of 2211 we can just get the summation symol but how can i include the lower and upper bounds to it.

    i guess there is separate package for this......i can increase the points if a proper tool is found out.

    Try Insert, Object, Microsoft Equation Object ...

    Equation editor is supplied as part of Office but doesn't show up on any menus.  Can't say I'm an expert on it but I know it's there ...

    For complete formulas you shoul use, as stated, the equation object.

    However, if you need in some parts of the text only 1 or a few special symbols, you can get them more quickly by using

    Insert,   Symbol, Symbols and choose there the once you need.

    By the way : you get superscript by pressing crtl shift +
                                  subscript                      crtl =

    You turn them off again by using the same keycombination.

    Hope this helps
