I have Microsoft Office 2011 installed in my Mountain Lion.

the problem is that while using Excel it does not recognize the key ˆ (hat) to calculate.

The unusual solution is to use the power function, but the ˆ typing should work correctly.


I think that reamapping keys in System Preferences/Language and text/Change symbols and text should work.

The problem is I do not know how to insert the ASCII symbol to change the keytype ˆ to this ASCII or unicode symbol.



Can anyone help me with this problem?
