Type a semi colon with the Wingdings 3 font.

close, the arrow points to the upper right hand corner.

Use ampersand &  instead of semi-colon.

Thanks for the quick response, but i need to type that into a table, not into a report. Any thoughts

What Font is the table using ?

One thing is ... you have to use the Numeric key pad with the Alt key held down.

Well for sure you can ... hit Copy on the Character Map ... type some text in the text box ... paste in that symbol ... and continue ...

I forget how to do the ALT thing exactly.  ALT 2197 gives a different symbol.

If you change the Character Set to Windows Western in Character Map (above Group By) ... it shows the Keystroke sequence - but that symbol is not present

avoskinarian,

Why not insert the symbol using the copy utility from the Charachter map as mX suggested?

See here for more info on inserting Character codes (not a straightforward as you might think...!)

I tried all the methods in that Link, no go ... but I did not tweak the Registry for the first method.

It's odd because I can (for Calibri) hold ALT down and type 0153 (see image 1) and get the Trademark symbol ... but, there is NO ALT sequence shown for the Arrow !
