    My favorite is -- go to the Google Group: microsoft.access.fr and copy
    the character you need :). Maybe the Chr() function and an extended
    ASCII chart will suffice. Also, some editors have ways to insert
    special characters. I don't know if changing the language setting on my
    computer would allow me to obtain characters.

    Look at the Character Map applet. In Windows XP, it's under Programs |
    Accessories | System Tools. Find the letter you want to include, and see
    whether there's a Keystroke to produce it.

    For example, you can produce è by holding down the Alt key while keying 0232
    on the number pad (the Num Lock must be on), or é by Alt 0233.
