    you can do it using the Ascii keyboard controls. ALT+0153.  It may cause you headaches though. We had users wanting to use the degree symbol in our item description. The system does not like these special types of special chars. It caused or application to crash. You could not go in and change the record using STRDFU, WRKQRY would also crash. The only way we could correct the record was with SQL.

    You didn't mention how the description field is defined within the file but assuming it's EBCDIC and CCSID 37 then you have a definite problem. The ™ character is not defined in that CCSID (or more accurately, the ™ character is not defined within character set 697, which is the character set used with CCSID 37). The "work around" is to use the registered trademark symbol ®. I have no idea how your keyboard might be mapped but in CCSID 37 this is x'AF'. 

    If, on the other hand, your description field is defined using Unicode then, with a Unicode-enabled 5250 emulator you can use the ™ character (u'2122' under letter like symbols).

    Hope this helps,

    Thanks for your replies.

    The field which i need to enter this data is a character field of length 256. It has all alphabets and numbers and other symbols. I need to add ™ also to it to validate the characters in a  any given company description.
