    Red face How to write Greek letters in VBA?

    Hello again.
    In a combobox, some items are Greek letters.
    By clicking "OK", a chart is generated from data in many sheets through a ".find()" which looks for the contents of the combobox (which may be Greek characters, such as alpha, beta, etc.) and takes the values of cells to construct the chart.

    However, I must write the word to be sought not only within ".find ()" but as a case of "Select Case ". So how to proceed?

    For example: it prints "?" instead of the letter "ρ" (rho)

    When I do:
    myoption = combobox1.text
    call maketable(myoption)
    and Set CellOK = Worksheets(i).Cells.Find(what:=myoption ...
    it's ok, the program finds "myoption" in every cell, mounts the table and builds the graph.
    but msgbox myoption returns "?"

    I'll only call maketable() if myoption obey some rules of "Select Case ". So I must write the Greek letters in the "Case ".

    use the character value for ᴩ
    vb Code:
    1. case chr(63)
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    Thanks. I wait it works inside "selectcase" and ".find()"; however, it's showing "?" yet in this code:
    Code:
    Sub msgpho()
        MsgBox Chr(63) + " isn't p; is it ok?"
        Range("A4").FormulaR1C1 = Chr(63)
        Dim str As String
        str = Chr(63)
        Range("A1").FormulaR1C1 = str
    End Sub
    And, where do I find out which letters represent which numbers?
