 Characters in text boxes

I am working in userforms in word 97. I am inserting
symbols into the text box within my form by opening
the "insert symbol" dialogue with the following code:

Sub cmdSymbol_Click()

Set adialog = Dialogs(wdDialogInsertSymbol)
Controls.Item(Currenttextbox).Text = Controls.Item
(Currenttextbox).Text & ChrW(adialog.charnum)

End Sub

Most characters can be inserted, however some characters
appear in the text box different to the one selected. Then
when these are inserted into the document, they appear as
boxes. A good example of this is when using the "Symbol"

Is this occuring because text boxes are only 7bit ASCII???
Is there any way I can resolve this??

thanks in advance
