Dollars – but No Cents

If you are working on financial documents or any other documents involving money in Microsoft Word 2000, chances are that you normally use the $ key on the keyboard to signify monetary amounts over a dollar. However, there may be times when you need to type in figures less than a dollar. Sure, you could always type 75 cents like so: $0.75, but what about typing in the cents sign (the ‘c’ with the slash)? To do so, just hold down the CONTROL key while pressing the slash ‘/’ button. Then, press the ‘c’ key. A cents sign will instantly appear in your current document.
