ampersand in note

ampersand in note

Okay I searched the archives and didn't get anywhere.
I would like to add an ampersand (&) to a note but since it is a special character I seem to be having problems making it happen. Is this possible?
I want my note to look like the... TEST CAP, C&K, instead of ... TEST CAP, C AND K.... Any hints?

Actually it's in a symbol, not a note. I can make it happen in a note but not a symbol...

Well so far I've tried the following in my symbol:

putting a space on both side... C_&_K ....didn't work

putting the & in quotes

putting the & in quotes (double and single) .... C '&' K ... C "&" K ... didn't work

putting in double &&... C && K ...didn't work

using alt 38 or alt 038 .... didn't work

No luck yet for getting the ampersand & in my symbol

The symbol I am trying to insert in my drawing uses variable text for this field and it's a completely open field as far as it doesn't have just a few potential entries.

As Stefan suggested, I was able to create a parameter (i used a drawing parameter that I called "ck") and then I used it in the symbol. It worked. Not the cleanest of solutions, but it was a solution...

For the variable text in my symbolI used... &CK:D .... I defined a drawing string parameter called ck and set the value to TEST CAP, C&K.

That's my best solution so far, I appreciate all the help.

Steve
