Getting down arrow in VA 6.0.2

Postby xabialonso2 » Wed Feb 23, 2011 10:36 pm

I am looking to get the down arrow character in Visual Age.
When I go (Character value: 24)
I correctly get $

However, when I go (Character value: 25)
I get $.

If I type Alt + 25 into Notepad using the numeric keys I corerctly get the down arrow.

Does anyone know a way to get the down arrow in Visual Age then.

Thanks for your help in advance.

The Downarrow is Unicode and also named "End of Medium" ... I guess the representation is right,... :-/ (Character value: 25 , right?) ... /index.htm

So I wouldn't wonder if you have an ASCII Arrow here, but it's represented as an Unicode EOM

Character value: 8595 should be a down arrow,... but it isn't,...
