 EQ instructions [switches]
 Produces a mathematical equation. Equation Editor is the recommended tool for creating equations. However, you can use the EQ field if you have not installed Equation Editor or if you want to write inline equations. An EQ field cannot be unlinked. If you double-click an EQ field, Microsoft Word converts the field to an embedded Equation Editor object.

 instructions???
 switches 
 \a()Array
 \ac Aligns center within columns
 \ac In the center (the default)
 \ain () Adds space above a line in a paragraph by the number of points specified by n
 \al Aligns left within columns
 \al At the left edge
 \ar Aligns right within columns
 \ar At the right edge
 \b()Bracket
 \ban () Draws to the left n points
 \bc\c Draws both bracket characters using the character specified for c
 \bo Draws a border below the element
 \con Arrays elements in n columns (the default is 1)
 \d()Displace
 \din ()] Adds space below a line in a paragraph by the number of points specified by n
 \don () Moves a single element below the adjacent text by the number of points specified by n
The default is 2 points
 \f()Fraction
 \fc\c Substitutes a fixed-height character specified by c for the symbol
 \fon () Draws to the right n points
 \hsn Adds n points of horizontal spacing between columns
 \i(,,)Creates an integral, using the specified symbol or default symbol and three elements
The first element is the lower limit, the second is the upper limit, and the third is the integrand
You can use the following options to modify the \i switch.
 \in Creates the inline format with the limits displayed to the right of the symbol instead of above and below it
 \l()List - Uses any number of elements to create a list of values separated by commas or semicolons, so that you can specify multiple elements as a single element.
 \lc\c Draws the left bracket using the character c
 \le Draws a border to the left of the element
 \li () Underlines the space up to the next character
 \o()Overstrike: - Places each successive element on top of the previous one
Any number of elements is permitted
Separate multiple elements with commas
Each character is printed within an invisible character box
Options align the boxes on top of one another
You can use the following options to modify the \o switch.
 \pr Changes the symbol to a capital pi and creates a product
 \r(,)Draws a radical using one or two elements.
 \rc\c Draws the right bracket using the character c
 \ri Draws a border to the right of the element
 \s()Places elements as superscript or subscript characters
Each \s code can have one or more elements; separate the elements with commas
If more than one element is specified, the elements are stacked and left-aligned
You can use the following options to place single elements after the \s switch.
 \su Changes the symbol to a capital sigma and creates a summation
 \to Draws a border above the element
 \upn () Moves a single element above the adjacent text by the number of points specified by n
The default is 2 points
 \vc\c Substitutes a variable-height character specified by c for the symbol
The symbol matches the height of the third element
 \vsn Adds n points of vertical spacing between lines
 \x()Box - Creates a border for an element
When used without options, this code draws a box around the element
You can combine the following options to modify the \x switch.

 REMARKS
 
  • To use a comma, open parenthesis, or backslash character in a resulting equation, precede the symbol with a backslash: \, \( \\.
  •  
  • Some switches require a list of elements separated by commas or semicolons. Use commas as the separators if the decimal symbol for your system is a period (specified as part of the regional settings in Microsoft Windows Control Panel). If the decimal symbol for your system is a comma, use semicolons.
  •  
  • Creates a fraction with the numerator and denominator centered above and below the division line, respectively. If your system uses a comma as the decimal symbol, separate the two elements with a semicolon (;).
  •  
  • Brackets a single element in a size appropriate to the element. The default brackets are parentheses. The following options can modify the \b switch. If the character you specify is {, [, (, or <, Word uses the corresponding closing character as the right bracket. If you specify any other character, Word uses that character for both brackets.
  •  
  • It is easier to use the Equation Editor.
  •  
  • If you double click on an EQ equation, it will be converted to an equation using the Equation Editor format.
  •  
  • Controls where the next character following the EQ field is drawn. The following options can modify the \d switch. Note that empty parentheses follow only the last option in the instructions.
  •  
  • This field is provided for compatibility with previous versions of Word.

  •  EXAMPLES
     { EQ \a \al \co2 \vs3 \hs3(Axy,Bxy,A,B) } displays the following:
    { EQ \b \bc\{ (\r(3,x)) } displays .
    { EQ \d \fo10 \li() } displays the following:
    { EQ \f(2,RateChange) } displays .
    { EQ \i \su(1,5,3) } displays .
    { EQ \l(A,B,C,D,E) } displays A,B,C,D,E.
    { EQ \r(3,x) } displays .
    { EQ \s\up8(UB)\s\do8(2) } displays:
