A long time back I asked how to type in the Pound symbol instead of the $ symbol. I think I had to put it on using "control+$", I think. Can someone remind me how to do it Please. TIA PJ

I have just written a 50+ page report for a UK company, got sick of the sign...

ALT-0163 using the number pad, not the numbers above the qwerty keys.

Hold ALT down and type 0-1-6-3 on the Number Pad keys, release ALT key ...

Spending some of that hoard of notes on a nice scanner for Maryann?

Look for the Character Map in your Start Menu.

It will tell the ALT+numeric combination for any character.

Hi PJ, Hold down the alt key, and press 0163 on the num keypad.

godfather........I would accept a new scanner, but the dear man is trying to "force" me to let go of W 98, and get XP!!
The strong winds blew the "money tree" down. ;) :^O
