How to Write Arabic Numbers in Word 2007


You probably already write Arabic numbers, even if you don't realize it. The English digits zero through nine are considered "Arabic numbers," so writing them is as simple as typing the characters. However, Microsoft Word 2007 also offers these digits in the Arabic language, so you can truly write Arabic numbers within Word by inserting them as symbols. Symbols are special characters embedded in your Word document.

  • Click the location where you want the Arabic numbers to appear in your Word 2007 document.

  • Click the top "Insert" tab.

  • Click "Symbol" in the Symbols group, and select "More Symbols."

  • Click the drop-down menu after "Subset" in the Symbol window, and select "Arabic."

  • Click the Arabic number you want, located five lines down from the default selection. The character codes are 0060 through 0669, which correspond to numbers zero through nine.

  • Click "Insert" to insert the Arabic number, and "Close" to close the Symbol window. Or, you can type the character code in the Word document: Hold the "Alt" key and press "X" to automatically insert the corresponding Arabic number.
