Adding an overbar to a letter in MS Word

When expressing the average like Y bar, this can be done in word by inserting a field code (CTRL F9), then creating the code as follows: { EQ \O (Y, ¯)}. The way you get the character ¯ to appear is by holding down the alt key, then typing the number sequence 0175. This is the ASCII code for an overbar.
