Squared symbol

Hello:  I am using Microsoft Word 2000.

Is there a squared symbol in Microsoft word.  If yes, how do I apply it.

Thanks.

You can get the same result by highlighting it and pressing Ctrl-+ (or Ctrl-= for subscript). Ctrl-Spacebar cancels character formatting. Thus, typing 8 Ctrl-+ 2 Ctrl-Spacebar = 64 would give you the same result as cquinn's example without having to leave the keyboard.

Note that superscripts entered in this way are not always "portable" to other applications. A more universal method would be to use the character ² by keying Alt-0178 (using the numeric keypad digits). Unfortunately, you are limited to 0, 1, 2 and 3 as superscripts in this manner (º, ¹, ², and ³) and no equivalent subscripts.

When you are talking of a squared symbol, I am assuming you are talking about the mathematical symbol meaning raised to the power of 2

Write out your number with a 2 on the end  eg 82 = 64, then highlight the 2, click on Format/Font from the menu and click in the box called "Superscript" - this will make the 2 smaller and raise it above the baseline

In case you are asking about a symbol that is literally a square...Open Word, select Insert and then select Symbol.

As it stands, it looks like superscripting is the better way to go.
