However, I cannot seem to get these characters to work in any of the VFP versions. I tried using the equivelant to ALT+219 in the windows charmap which equals "U+2588" and that did not work. Anyone know how I can use these characters in a VFP report.

Yuri, yes you can set the field to any font you want, however what I was trying to do is create a string using the codes from the charmap and store this string as a varible then call this varible to print on the report not needing to know any particular font. I think I might have found another solution anyways. Thanks for the response. :)
