    Default Symbols in Excel

    Hi - trying to type the following list of symbols in excel - related to Quant analysis.....

    List:

    Symbols for Alpha, Beta, Theta (theta is oval shape with horizontal line thru it)

    a "Not equal to" sign - ie. = with slash thru it

    a "Less than or equal to" sign AND a "Greater than or equal to" sign

    Proper signs for variance / standard deviation like you'd see in text book

    Exponents ie I already know how to calculate but can I make it look like a smaller letter in upper right as opposed to ^(2) for example

    Similar to exponent , want to use a "sub zero" symbol - ie symbol with smaller zero to bottom right of symbol ie. to type Null Hypothesis generic symbols

    Term "bar" - ie how to have a symbol but with a bar over it....

    Text square root sign you'd see in a book (to calculate I know I'd do exponent ^ (1/2) etc., but I'd like to have the proper sign you'd see in a text book .....

    Wow - that's alot - hopefully will help.....thanks in advance for any help that may come my way.
