    Access and Symbols (2000 (9.0.2720))

    I am building a database of approved abbreviations and symbols. W/ the help of character mapping I have been able to copy and past most symbols from character map to the database. However, I have four that I'm unable to find in character map. Does character map allow me to create my own symbols. If so, how do I proceed?

    Character map only displays characters that are available in the fonts installed on your system. You cannot use it to create your own symbols.

    The Arial Unicode MS font contains a very large number of symbols; see if it is installed on your PC (and that of your users); it comes standard with Windows XP (Home and Pro).
