Inserting Symbols

The Symbol command enables you to insert special characters, international characters, and symbols such as the registered trademark (®) and trademark (™) symbols. You can easily add these and other special characters to your Excel worksheets. You delete symbols and special characters just as you delete any other text–by using the Backspace or Delete key.
