[SOLVED] how to display bulleted list

Is there a way to display a report output as a bulleted list?
I know we can try using DEFINE or COMPUTE to display an image, but is there any other way.

We are using WF 8105, but I am also interested in knowing if there are any new features in later versions as we are planning on upgrading.

I doubt it. But just to be sure you want to see a list of country with Bullets?

If its HTML, then you can use CSS to do it.

BabakNYC,
Yes, I want to see a list of countries with bullets.

Waz,
We want it either in Word or PPT, and since we didn't find much on styling Word, we are leaning towards PPT.

I'm not sure if the symbol font is universally available. This would be compatible with multiple output formats.
TABLE FILE car 
PRINT  
COMPUTE BULLET/A1= HEXBYT(183,'A1'); AS ''
 COUNTRY
ON TABLE SET PAGE NOLEAD
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
INCLUDE=IBFS:/FILE/IBI_HTML_DIR/ibi_themes/Warm.sty,$
TYPE=DATA, COLOR=BLUE, COLUMN=BULLET, FONT=SYMBOL,$
ENDSTYLE
END

PDF, HTML and powerpoint.

All of the above involve DEFINE or COMPUTE. I don't see how you can accomplish this without one.

Hi All, I admit that what Pav and I have is using a compute. However, it is not using an image.

Deepti2, is that ok?

Pav, I want to thank you for trying out my version of your solution and replying.

Your solution worked for me in pdf but not html.

If I am correct, either solutions may work for Deepti2. If they do not then I would suggest finding a character that works via HEXBYT that does work.

Thank you Fernando for your words.

Yes, my example works only for PDF and for HTML we need to use this '&'|'#8226;'.

My version is 8.1.05.

Hoping this would be helpful for Deepti2.

Fernando, I tried your version and it works in PPTX.

pav, your version works in pdf, but I don't get a proper bullet point in PPTX.

dbeagan, your version also works in PPTX.

Thank you all for your help. I am going to use COMPUTE and try to make it work.
