How can I make the Tradmark Symbol in Excel? I have seen it before but can't remember how to execute it.

Search Excel's help for "trademark." Its right there.

On the Windows Start menu, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Character Map.
If Character Map is not available, see Windows Help for information about how to install a Windows component.

In the Font box, select the font that contains the character you want.

In the character grid, click the character you want.

Click Select, and then click Copy.
You can select and copy multiple characters.

Switch to your workbook, and then place the insertion point where you want to paste the character.

Click Paste .
If the character looks different from the one you selected, select the character and apply the same font you selected in Character Map.

Tip Character Map shows the key shortcut you can use in Microsoft Excel to insert the selected character. If the key shortcut includes a number key, press the key you want on the numeric keypad, not on the main keyboard area.

Hi Sphinx

Type: (tm) ad Excels Auto Correct will place it in for you. If it doesn't go to Tools>AutoCorrect and ensure the "Replace text as you type" is checked.
