Reporting Services Superscript Problem

    Question

  • I want to superscript in text field in SSRS,
    I know of chr (178) to get unicode of superscript number '2', but what about any other number like 8,9,0,... or even letters t,a,e,...
    all I found were some numbers but not all in a pdf I downloaded containing all superscript unicodes, they must exist some where, because in MS office you can "Superscript/Subscript" any letter, or number, or am I wrong, please help

  • Hi AhmedMMT,

     

    It seems you want to display more and more Unicode chars in the Report. If I have misunderstood, please let me know.

     

    By default, the function “chr()” only display the ASCII code. The ASCII code only has 255 codes.

     

    To display Unicode chars, we could use the function “chrW()”.

    E.g.

    Superscript 9: =chrW(8313)

    Subscript 9: =chrW(8329)

     

    If the Reporting Services can’t not display Unicode characters, please follow these steps to solve the issue:

    1. Goto Control panel -> Regional and Language option -> Language tab .

    2. Click on Install files for complex scripts and right to left languages.

    3. It will prompt a message box, You have to insert the operating system CD to get it installed.

     

    Here is a document refers to Unicode chars:

    Please feel free to ask, if you have any more questions.

     

    Thanks,

  • Thank you Chin for your response,
    I knew about that PDF (but what about all the letters supercripts),
    I have these letters ('a','b','c') that I want to Superscript them, any idea how, the pdf doesn't mention these letters,
    also, are these superscripts supported by all fonts or onlt that supports unicode?

    how does for example (Microsoft Excel) perform superscript on letters if they have no unicode for them? 

    Your help is appreciated
    Thank you again
