    The answer to the first part is to press Alt+174 and Alt+175 (using the number pad).

    For the second part, I suspect you will need to be a bit more specific as to what you mean by a "symbol". Is this something in a particular font? Is this a range of particular characters? Without knowing more clearly, it is difficult to make practical suggestions.

    If you use straight quotes and format the text as French, you can also use "Format > AutoFormat" to put in French quotes.

    Now that is really a gem. <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30> I would have thought that you needed the French language pack installed...but I don't & it still worked. Neat trick. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>

    Here's a macro to count the number of symbols in a document. My definition of symbol is anything in a symbol font like Marlett or Webdings or anything except 0-9, A-Z, a-z, and paragraph breaks in a character font. You will probably want to expand my definition. For example, I will count a section break as a symbol, plus you may have other fonts that are purely symbols. HTH --Sam

    Public Sub countSymbols()
    Dim c As Range
    Dim i As Long
    For Each c In ActiveDocument.Characters
    Select Case c.Text
    Case "0" To "9", "A" To "Z", "a" To "z", " ", vbCr, vbLf
    Select Case c.Font.Name
    Case "Marlett", "MS Outlook", "MT Extra", "Symbol", "Webdings", _
    "Wingdings", "Wingdings 2", "Wingdings 3" ' Symbol font
    i = i + 1
    End Select
    Case Else ' Symbol
    i = i + 1
    End Select
    Next c
    MsgBox "This document contains " & i & " symbols."
    End Sub</pre>
