    To create a 'bullet' character:
    make sure NumbersLock is on
    press and hold Alt
    enter 0149 on the numeric keypad
    release Alt

    Bosslady, do not get upset now if I get it wrong with my assumption .

    I assume you are talking about the dot (point, decimal point), based on that both your posts in this thread miss the dots and that I think you mean the decimal point in your original post, wanting it between the 2 and the 4 to get 2.4.

    Using UK English keyboard layout, the dot (point, decimal point) is two keys to the right from the letter M, second row from bottom on your keyboard:

    Hmmm..., maybe try 'Eng US' keyboard if you aren't using that.
    (you are talking about 'bullets' right?: 2 4)

    You can also use Character Map to find the character you want and copy it to the clipboard.

    You lost me totally. Taking the essential from your original post, this is what you asked:

    If you are talking about need of decimal points, of course they are needed. 2.4 X 0.46 is totally different than 24 X 46.
