    I think the the easiest method is to check your program for a menu option that allows you to insert symbols. For example, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint all have an Insert menu with an option for Symbol. When you use this Insert Symbol option, a dialog opens where you can select a font and symbol. Depending on which program you're using, you may see a Shortcut key for your symbol. For example, in Microsoft Word I could simultaneously press my Ctrl key, forward slash key and c key to get the cents sign.

    If you know the code number, you can enter that character any time by just holding down the ALT key, and typing the 4-digit code number on the numeric keypad (the keys on the far right of your keyboard, do not use the "normal" number keys above the letter keys). Even though character code numbers are only three digits (between 0 and 255), you must type in the leading zeros to ensure that you get the proper character.

    Follow the below steps mention.

    1. Select the range of cells you want to apply this format to.
    2. Then, Select Format, Cells, and click on the Number tab.
    3. In the Category field, select Custom.
    4. In the Type field, enter [<1].00;$0.00_
    Note: You can copy this format directly from this web page or, if you enter it yourself, remember that to get the cents symbol you need to hold down by pressing the ALT key and enter 155 (or 0162),then release the ALT key.
    5. And finally click on OK button.
