    I would like to know how I can insert Hat P Formula in Word (^P) i.e I need the ^ above the P

    the full formula is below.

    ^p1 = D1/(Rs-g). I would also prefer to have a line under D1 and have Rs-s below D1 after the line

    Please advise how i can do this in Word

    Your assistance will be most appreciated

    regards

    You can use an { ADVANCE } field to put the ^ character above the P character. This can be a bit tricky since you need to specify the exact amount of space to move the characters and this depends on the font size.

    You can use Microsoft Equation Editor to create your equation.

    The attached word document includes examples of how to do this with both of these. Use Alt-F9 to display the field codes (and Alt-F9 again to display the results).

    Hi Stuart

    Thanks for the help. How do I use the Equation Editor to set up a formula such as this

    I need one small favour, I need the 1 after ^P to be in subscript as well as the 1 after D1 to be in subscript

    Your assistance will be most appreciated

    Regards

    I have modified the example document to superscript these 1s.
    [attachment=83563:Equations.doc]
    In the example with the Advance fields this was easy, I just selected the 1 and used Format > Font > Superscript.

    In equation editor I put the cursor between the P and the 1, and then used the superscript template (highlighted in this graphic) to insert a superscript placeholder. I typed a 1 into this space and deleted the old 1.

    Here are some links with information about using Equation Editor.

    Hi Howard,

    Another way, without invoking the Equation Editor, is to use an equation field, which you could code as: {EQ \o (^,P1) = \s(\f(D1,(Rs-g)))}. To get the exact layout you want, you'll need to modify the font attributes of some characters. See attached.
