    You could use a Word field coded as:
    {EQ (NO \o (–,3))}
    where the en-dash (i.e. –) is superscripted and the 3 is subscripted. You may need to increase the point size of the en-dash and/or decrease the point size of the 3. You can create the field braces (i.e. {}) pressing Ctrl-F9. Selecting the field and pressing F9 will update the field display, whilst Shift-F9 will expose the field code for editing.

    Thanks for your reply to my problem, I don't know whether this makes a difference en-dash is a minus sign
