Symbols for degree and diameter

Symbols for degree and diameter

Symbols for degree and diameter

(OP)
How is the symbol for degree. ex. 100 "degree symbol" , or the symbol for diameter ex, 1" "diameter symbol" displayed in a text box in Access?

RE: Symbols for degree and diameter

Ms. Access will only let ONE font be specified for a given (native) textbox.  You need to 'find' the font (probably symbol something) and set the textbox control to use this.  If you need to get 'fancy' and have the APPEARANCE of the symbols being in a single control, you need to either use a third party control, rich textbox control ... OR just "butt" two text boxes together and put the value in one and the symbol in the other.

RE: Symbols for degree and diameter

The problem I have is the symbol is being used in a part description such as   "40BC30 .75" "I.D.SYMBOL" KS BEARING".
The "I.D.SYMBOL" can fall in different parts of the description.

RE: Symbols for degree and diameter

(OP)
I found the answer. Hold the alt key then enter 0248 whe the alt key is released the symblol is inserted. ø It works here also.

RE: Symbols for degree and diameter

Well, as 'they' say, "whatever floats your boat", but if that is the only symbol you want, I wouls suggest dro[[ing the "0".  "[Alt]0248" = ø, while "[Alt]248" = °, which is "closer" to the Degree symbol.  I do not know the symbol for the 'inside diameter' of a pipe (or if i ever did I've certailny forgotten it), so I thought you needed a general soloution, not one that 'happens' to be in the default font.

If - for some reason - the default font in your textbox is changed, the symbol may also change!
