Enter Foreign and Special Characters

Enter characters you can't find on a keyboard using its ASCII code ... and learn how to make a handy reference for yourself using Excel ~

Use these codes in any Windows application! ... whether it is a Microsoft Office product like Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Access,... or a simple program like NotePad.

Along these lines, I've written a tool to make it easier to input and lookup Unicode when you are in Access, and am making another video on Unicode - so be on the lookout for it.

Please Like, Comment, and Share with your friends ~

have an awesome day,
