How to type a superscript into a text field

Hello,

I've inherited an MS Access database the has superscripts in text fields.  There are no forms.  How can I put in more superscripts of letters other than the one in my sample?

I've tried cut and paste and keyboard shortcuts to no avail.  Please don't post the first results from a google search.

Database is attached.

Thanks

Access have no "insert symbol", you can do it manually. Almost any font have special symbols. You can insert them with Alt+symbol code in numeric keyboard. For example in Tahoma superscript 1 is Alt+0185, 2 is Alt+0178. You can open Word, select font, select symbol and under table you will see proper code.

I'm with als315, the Alt codes may not be user friendly, but they do work...

Just curious?
Is the Superscript a deal breaker?
Is "5th" really that ugly...?

Just so we are clear,...
als315 has indeed  answered your question and you should accept that post.

For me, ...I just get "itchy" whenever someone wants to store "formatted" data in an Access database table.

Even with the new "Rich Text" (HTML) functionality, it is likely that a program you may need to output this data to may not recognize superscript (or any other formatted) text.

It's a lookup for categories in a report.  The superscript text for footnotes that are needed for certain categories.
