Default greater than or equal to symbol (>=)

Is there a key combination that will insert the symbols for greater than or
equal to, and less than or equal to in a Word document? As in: an autocorrect
where = would be changed to the correct symbol?

Thanks.

Select the Symbol you want.
Select Autocorrect and you and enter the characters you want changed to that
symbol.

Have a great day!

i'm afraid i didn't 'get it'. i followed barb's instructions but it inserts a
character that's already in the wingdings table. i don't see a = symbol,
where 'greater than' is above the 'equals' symbol.

Default greater than or equal to symbol (=)

In the Insert | Symbol dialog ("normal text)," find character 2265 (in the
Mathematical Operators character subset). Insert it in your document. Select
it. Go to Tools | AutoCorrect Options. The symbol should already be in the
"With" box. Type = in the "Replace" box. Click Add, then OK.

i realized that on my laptop, Word was not set to 'normal text'. once i made
the change, voila!
