  • Although you can use Unicode character 0305 for this, it doesn't work very well. You'll get better results if you insert an equation in your document:

    On the Insert tab of the ribbon, click Equation > Insert new equation...

    Click Accent, then select Overbar.

    Type the character under the overbar.
