G'Day Surfer,
You do not tell us what version of Word... For now type (say) ax2+bx+c ... Select the '2'. FormatFont __select 'Superscript' ... OK. All done! Be aware that Word has an excellent equation editor for more complex formulae.  Regards, Pat Garard Melbourne, Australia _______________________ "Surfer" wrote: Hello all.

As Doug suggests, there are font characters for superscript 2 and 3 (and
higher numbers in some fonts); for other numbers, select the number and press Ctrl+Shift+= to apply the Superscript font property.  Suzanne S.
