    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.

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

    Have a great day!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. thnx so much for the response! after locating the character on my desktop PC,
    i realized that on my laptop, Word was not set to 'normal text'. once i made
    the change, voila!
