ASCII Character Not appearing in PROC REPORT and ODS EXCEL TAGSET export

Hi

 

I'm using ALT 246 which is the ascii character of division sign and storing this in a dataset.

 

PROC REPORT

and

ODS TAGSET to export to EXCEL does not print this character when I use the University Edition of BASE SAS

 

However it works in office in EG.
