Hi, Easiest would be to change your ODS ESCAPECHAR or, here are some other examples. The bottom line is that if your ESCAPECHAR is the ^, you won't be able to type that character directly. You can use the UNICODE function to get the caret, as shown in #1, but I find the symbol very, very tiny, as opposed to #2 or #3.

Output  shown is HTML, but RTF looks approx the same except title is in header of Word doc.
