In word 2007 how can I enter a square root symbol. Not in Symbol
I can't find the square root sign in the symbol section. I see it in the
equation section as part of the quadratic equation but I don't know how to add the symbol to my own equation.

Hey there! I can definitely help you out with that. Here's how you can enter a square root symbol in Word 2007:
That's it! You should now have a square root symbol in your document. If you need to edit the equation later, simply click on it and then click on the "Equation" button again to bring up the editor. I hope that helps!

If you just want the radical sign (the checkmark), it's at Unicode
221A. Place your cursor where you want it to appear and type 221a Alt x. If it appears, see what font it's in. If it doesn't appear at all, that means you don't have any font installed that includes that character. (But if you can type a quadratic equation with the equation editor, then it's in there somewhere.)

Hi Eric,
If you're looking to add either the Square Root/ Radical symbol, or a Square Root equation structure within a Word 2007 equation object you can do it in several ways. If you add a blank equation to your document via: Alt= or double Click on the 'Equation' button under Insert=Equation or Insert=Equation=Insert New Equation You can use then the 'Radicals' button on Equation Tools=Design=Structures to Insert an empty Square Root structure or, under Equation Tools=Design=Symbols scroll to 'Basic Math' and choose just the Radical symbol or, you can use the Math Autocorrect shorthand of typing in your equation \sqrt followed by a space or punctuation. ============ "Eric Hasper" Eric wrote in message news I can't find the square root sign in the symbol section.
